Writing is very similar to this. There will be days when it simply hurts to write. It may be physical as you sit their for hours and your body really starts to ache. Shoulder, back, butt... you get the idea. Staring at that computer screen and your eyes start to really burn and hurt. We get it! We have all been there.

And then there are the rejections. We are constantly struggling with those letters saying "we were not good enough." O.K. In reality the reason for rejection is not about you but the story, and yet, our brain pushes us to make it personal.
But if you ARE A WRITER, and not someone who simply writes, you will push beyond this. You will find a way to make those dealines that laugh at you and come up on you too quickly. You will push beyond the mental and physical pain to get to that end goal.
The question is, how bad do you want it? Do you want it bad enough to push yourself until it hurts, and then take it to next level? Or, will you, stop when it starts to hurt?
