I recently watched The Mindscape of Alan Moore, and I am watching it again now, writing down certain quotes. His accent is bit hard to follow sometimes, but I think this is a faithful transcription:

Quitting my day job and starting my life as a writer was a tremendous risk.

It was a fool's leap, a shot in the dark, but any thing of any value in our lives, whether that be a career, a work of art, a relationship will always start with such a leap. And in order to be able to make it you have to put aside the fear of failing and the desire of succeeding.

You have to do these things completely purely, without fear, without desire. Because things that we do without lust or result are the purest actions that we shall ever take.

For me, this answers the problem posed by my first post.
