Encouragement Pages-07/09/2021: CHOOSE YOUR HARD (3/3)

Writing is hard. But it is not impossible!

But you have to understand that in “choosing your hard” you are investing in your talent. You are paying attention.

You have made the decision to do what is difficult, for a favorable outcome. It is the outcome we want, we chase and that we want.

Don’t abandon what you need to do because it’s hard—it will always be hard. But you must examine what is HARDER. Once you see that, accept that, it will make writing less hard and more necessary.

With Love & Ink,

Thank you for Nicole Waters for this piece of advice.

Writers are in the business of doing the work of the hard things. In the case of writing, you must make this constant decision:

Am I going to write?

This question is always going to be one which you will, must, answer. You must understand the work isn’t going away, but you will have to do it. Not doing it will never be an answer.

With Love & Ink,
