You Can Do Anything
A friend of mine once told me that there are two keys to being a successful writer.
First, follow up on everything you engage in.
Second, be sure you marry somebody with lots of energy.
I suspect that he is absolutely right. After all, what is more important than owning up to your own responsibilities and watching the people you surround yourself with?
Writing is a wonderful career. It is a difficult career. You will search for the right words for hours before you find then, but when you do, the satisfaction is greater than anything you can possibly imagine. Writing is also a lonely career, in some cases. You may spend months locked away in an office surrounded by sheaves of notes and stacks of books before you finish your novel.
Yet when you do - the sense of accomplishment is wonderful!
Don't ever give up on writing. And don't let it give up on you.
