A lot of people think that writing is this artsy job where we stare into the distance and are struck by the muses to write.
And I guess? Sometimes? Maybe that happens?
But usually no. It’s hard work. We have and idea. And we’re just trying to damn hard to make that idea happen. And it’s not just writing it. It’s editing. It’s revising. It’s deleting. And that sounds so simple, but it’s not. It’s really, really not.
Don’t get me wrong: I love it, even the pain. But it’s not easy. Anything worthwhile rarely is.
