As others have said, inspiration is not what makes a writer. Sitting down and writing when you aren’t inspired is what makes a writer.

I would be more inclined to think this purely illustrates the difference between someone who does it for a living and someone who writes for a hobby. The person earning a living from it has certain business obligations to fulfil.

It’s an interesting question though, if you “force” yourself to sit and write can you achieve the same result as if it’s written “in the moment”? Or maybe a better result even?

If your lacking inspiration I would stop writing and go and explore the world. I’ve heard that it’s a big place where lots of strange things happen 😉
