I was reading this book called ‘The Gene: An Intimate History, by Mukherjee. It’s all about genetics and on page 133 there is this quote that spoke to me the moment I read it;
‘It isn’t creativity that fades, but stamina: science is an endurance sport.’
Just swap out the word science and replace it with the phrase ‘creative writing’ or ‘being an author’. That’s what you need to be successful in the writing game. Luckily for me, I’m playing the long game. Have lots of works out before hitting it big with whatever I come up with in the future 🙂
There are times when I doubt if I’m ever going to become a successful writer or that down the line I’ll fail and give up. That idea cuts me deep. But when I voice my concerns to Chris he tells me that you only fail as a writer when you give up. He says that me putting my work out is more than a lot of other people will ever do and it makes me feel better about myself 🙂 Thanks Lovely Chris.
