So true, isn't it? As much as writing can grab us and make us want to hole up somewhere with a laptop and write forever, it also takes a lot of WORK. A lot of effort to keep learning and keep growing and keep writing and keep revising and keep blogging or any / all the other things we do along with it. I mean, it takes a lot!
“Anyone can become a writer. The trick is staying a writer.”
So is it easy to STAY a writer? I'm going to say no. Every once in a while, the thought crosses my mind about how much easier life would be if I didn't write. Easier? Yes! Better? For me, no. And I'm guessing for most, if not all, of you-- the answer is no, too.
(Of course, life would be easier if we had a maid, a personal chef, a personal shopper, and a gardener. (Ooo! While we're dreaming big, let's throw in masseuse, too.) But who says life is supposed to be easy? We don't need no stinkin EASY! We're tough! (We best keep telling ourselves that, too, lest we forget.))
So what do you think? On a scale of 1-10, (10 being the highest, of course, since it's the highest), what are the chances you'll STAY a writer? And to reward you for answering such a hard question, have a cookie!!
