A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people.
When you don’t call yourself a writer you just write. But the minute it is your profession there is a whole lot of stuff that goes along with it. Fear, doubt, insanity, procrastination, guilt, and worry…endless worry. Speaking for myself of course.I vacillate between “I suck, why am I wasting my time” and “Just keep it up, greatness is around the corner” weekly. Thankfully, I have my inner nag to keep me going. What keeps you going when you want to quit?
Today, write about a job that you quit that you didn’t regret. And then write about a job you quit that you do regret. My former evil boss, who shall remain nameless for now…is still evil and verbally abusive. But I count on karma to set that straight.
Now get back to work!
