Challenges of a Writer

Gotta say, you won’t find a tougher group than writers.

Rejection? We deal with it daily.
Criticism? Always.
Judgment? Just look at someone’s reaction when you tell them what you do.

But here’s the kicker, because despite all that we continue to write–in whatever way possible.

Not stupid, maybe a little stubborn and definitely driven. Driven by emotions, desires, concerns, and issues. Driven to see a greater world, to spark a change or to dive headfirst into the darkest depths just to grasp that seed of hope.

So to all those writers out there, whatever stages you may be in–keep writing. Our pen is a weapon and our words are the daily battles we face.


I split my time writing and working my day job as a massage therapist. If it’s a creative pursuit though, chances are I’ve dabbled in it. Hell, I’ve played around with soapmaking, beer brewing, cupcake baking, tea blending and everything else under the midday sun. At the end of the day, my constant is always reading, writing and editing. I’m an Aries-Taurus cusp–which to any astrology buffs should tell you plenty. I hit the East Coast convention circuit pretty hard and chances are, you can find me vending for Solstice Brews while simultaneously promoting my books.

  1. Amen. People n’t realize how hard it is to be a writer, to work toward something where people can tear you apart if they don’t like your work. “Oh, it’s easy,” the normal people tell you (yes, the normal being the non-creative. We writers are obscure)
