G is for goal
*The goal to write, write, write*
You aren't a writer because you like things simple.
You aren't a writer because you love rejections.
You're a writer because no matter how tough it gets, you've got a goal. The goal to write that book inside your head, the one driving you. Why? Because your goal is what you live for.
Even if your current WIP is tougher to write than you thought, and taking a lot longer to finish than you expected, you and I both know, you were born to write. It's why you feel most alive when you're writing.
Sure you love your family and friends. But you're a writer, and as a writer, you don't have to explain to the rest of us (writers) what writing feels like. You don't have to explain how painful that last rejection letter was. Or that 2 star review. All you have to do is keeping working on your goal.
The stuff life throws at you in between is what Insecure Writer's Support Group on the first Wednesday of every month is for.
