Just wanted to share a quote I found and the comment to it. It spoke volumes to me and every word of it is true…
Write every day. Don’t ever stop. If you are unpublished, enjoy the act of writing—and if you are published, keep enjoying the act of writing. Don’t become self-satisfied, don’t stop moving ahead, growing, making it new. The stakes are high. Why else would we write?
Whenever I question whether or not to continue writing; I ask myself is it worth the time and effort put forth to complete a project? Then I come across a word of encouragement; your Blog reinforces why we choose to write. It is not for the years spent completing a project, nor is it the rejection letters that bring us to tears. By far it is the passion that drives us to write, in the worlds we create and the characters we bring to life. Writers simply do so because it is what drives us, and it is what we love to do. You understand what we as writers need to hear, especially when we question our craft.
