sunday words: if you take the stand

“Sometimes you have to endure a phase of discomfort before you learn how to be comfortable in your own skn. The majority of writers don’t have the patience for tolerating the awkwardness of learning, growing, adjustment. So they quit after they can’t sell their first effort.

If you take the stand that you’re going to do this writing gig:

–no matter what
–regardless of what others think
–until you learn it better
–every day
–until you die,

then one day, when you least expect it, you suddenly are good at this business.”

Words by Hope Clark from her Funds For Writers newsletter.
