Last night we were watching A League of Their Own and we came to that line. You know, the line.
"It's supposed to be hard. If it were easy everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it great."
I think this applies to anything that people are passionate about but of course it applies to writing too. Writing is hard, it's also brilliant and amazing, and I think the good times are even sweeter for having spent time thinking I've lost it all.
To overcome challenges, to sweat and work and toil and pray, gives you such a sense of accomplishment when you stand victorious at the end of that manuscript.
When the hard times come calling, just remember, hard is what makes it great.
