Thirty-three Word Thursday

An artist must approach his work consciously, but you are confusing two concepts: the solution of a problem and the correct formulation of a problem. Only the second is required of the artist. 
— Anton Chekhov

Ah Mr. Chekhov. Brilliant. Nice to see quote from someone I've heard of too.

Not that I haven't enjoyed all the other, though. Thanks Michelle!

Seems like a lot of writers and other artists (including myself) sometimes get that backwards, spouting off about a solution to a problem that has not yet been correctly formulated.
