Our brains literally evolved to NOT pay attention to boring stuff
We are forced to do boring things because that keeps other folks wealthy
The reason why you want to do hobbies all day is that you were supposed to be an artisan
Artisans were once seen to be the clearest sign of civilisation, not a burden
We have enough food now that all humanity could master the lyre
But we have chosen coin
and coin does not sing
Hi all! For #introductions, I'm currently a freelance writer and editor (and recovering cybersecurity writer) with a love of writing sci-fi and fantasy in my free time. I'm working through hopefully my last major revision for my first #WIP novel, while also doing some micro and flash fiction on the side which I'm trying to get in the habit of posting on Medium instead of just letting it molder unseen.
This is also my first time using Mastodon, so exciting times all round.
