Phew, just in time. Again. I really needed this today. I am a creative nonfiction writer/ sometimes poet, struggling with my first novel. Thanks for reminding me that it is ok that it is hard, and that doesn’t mean I won’t be able to write it.

“A writer is a person for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people,” is a definition attributed to Thomas Mann. GO YOU, you've got this, if it's easy, you're probably not trying hard enough (except for rare occasions, sometimes lightning strikes, but, most of the time, we work, work, work!). xo

If you ever decide to start a cult, I'll probably join. You've got a way with words.
