Keep Writing

I read a daily kick today from David Farland that I wanted to share. He says in part:

“There are many reasons why people give up on stories. Sometimes they encounter unexpected difficulties in writing. That’s very common with new writers who discover that it’s a lot harder to write well than the author imagined. Sometimes health issues get in the way, or the writer gets delayed by emergencies at work. Too often the writer just feels that he or she has “run out of steam.” A novel that felt exciting, that felt like a good idea at first, somehow fails to excite in the long run. That’s because we as authors get used to ideas…. So keep writing. If you’ve got a story that you left unfinished because it feels cold to you, write it anyway. If you’re going to make it as a professional, you’ve got to muscle through your stories sometimes and just keep producing.”
