I don’t comment on other people’s blogs very often, but when I read Amanda Fanger’s recent post, I felt compelled to. She’s an inspirational person, and I need to keep her in my head for when I want to stop writing. Writers understand something key about this craft that the average Joe doesn’t.
This thing we do is HARD. It hurts sometimes, bad enough that you want to walk away and never do it again. It haunts you when you don’t do it… unless, it isn’t truly a part of who you are. Then you can stop.
I have wanted to stop. I’ve tried to stop. I can’t.
I have to move forward.
Is there something in your life that requires you to move forward, not give up? What is the Muse for you?
