It's not easy

"Writing is the hardest work in the world. I have been a bricklayer and a truck driver, and I tell you -- as if you haven't been told a million times already -- that writing is harder. Lonelier. And nobler and more enriching."
--Harlan Ellison


This writing life I have chosen isn't easy; I have tried to stop many times. Times when the frustration and difficulty can be disheartening. Something always pulls me back in. I think it's my love of words and how good writing is when it works. When you pull those simple words together into a sentence, a paragraph, a page and it sings. Or when you touch a reader with your words...those are good days.

Write a page today about why you write and why you continue to write daily. At those times you want to quit take out your page and read it, better yet post it next to your desk or keep it tucked into your daily writing notebook.

Need an inspiring goal this summer? Check out the this link. If you think you can write a novel in 3 days you need to register by August 31st.

Now get back to work.

Lovingly,

The Writing Nag
