Quotes to Remember

β€œIt is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”

― Theodore Roosevelt

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.
