  1. I’m reminded of a quote from A League of Their Own. Dottie was about to ditch the team to go home with her husband, and she said (about the game, not her husband), “It just got too hard.” And Tom Hanks replies, “If it wasn’t hard, everyone would do it. It’s the ‘hard’ that makes it great.”

    The thing with writing is a LOT of people think it’s easy and receive an unfortunate awakening. It’s just like anything else where you expect results: there are no get rich quick schemes that work, no magic diets, and no way to write a good story without working your ass off and probably crying. Anything worth doing takes effort.

  2. AGREE! As a novice writer, boy do I know the long and tedious road. I’m not saying I haven’t been looking for the ultimate shortcut, but all I have found so far is the steep road. It also has its rewards.
