I was reading a book and came across this statement.
“I’m not interested in making what’s easy. I’m interested in making what’s beautiful”
It wasn’t talking about writing but it applies just the same. I don’t want to throw a book together and make it just good enough. I want it to be the best it can be. I want to stretch and grow to get it there. I want it to challenge not only me as the writer, but the reader too. Otherwise, what’s the point of all the effort?
