Writing: Pushing Onward
And often, life gets in the way. Just today I learned of two writers, one of whom has significant health problems that will require her to curtail her activities, another whose wife is undergoing chemotherapy for cancer...and it's not helping. Imagine yourself writing under these circumstances.
Having to "soldier on" despite what life throws at you isn't confined to writing, of course. In every profession and walk of life there are days, even weeks and months, when it's all we can do to get out of bed and face the need to be productive. We may be motivated by economic need, by external circumstances, by promises made or contracts signed. Surely you've been there, done that. So now I invite you to tell us about what made you push onward when it was tough to do so. I look forward to reading about it.
