“The daily grind of hard work gets a person polished.”
Writers, whether they’re looking at a blank screen or a stack of pages waiting for revision, face a challenge every time they sit down at the keyboard or pick up a pen to write.
Yes, my job requires lots of hard work, but I don’t mind that at all, because going through the process of brainstorming, creating, and revising a story helps me polish it till it shines.
The process polishes me, too, leaving me with a better knowledge of my craft and the satisfaction of knowing I persisted and met the challenge.
Is there something you work hard at, or something you love to do, that leaves you feeling just as satisfied?
Or is there something you haven’t been doing that’s calling to you? Is it time to accept the challenge?
All my best,
