Growing As A Writer

Writing is fun, right?

In truth it is.

What’s hard is everything else that goes along with it and the fatigue and frustration that tag along like unwanted urchins.

Even though these unwanted entanglements can at times bring us all down, they unwittingly do something else as well. For it is through these struggles that we learn, we improve, and we grow. I just hope the trail of written bodies behind me doesn’t become my lasting legacy, for the present and the future aspects of my writing are looking rather good.

So to all the writers out there who feel like dropping their heads on their laptops I say, carry on. Forget those things which are behind, and reach forth unto those things which are before. (Phil 3:13)
