on Writing Forward:
From a distance, writing looks like one of the easiest jobs in the world. You get to set your own hours. You’re not tied to a place of employment. And you spend your days making up stories.
However, writing is not as easy as it looks. It can be thrilling, exhilarating, daunting, and exhausting. There are good days and bad days. Sometimes the words flow. Other times you want to give up.
But you do it anyway.
