Encouragement, Writing Advice

Encouraging words for the discouraged writer.

imageIf you’re discouraged with your writing, perhaps the following excerpt from Nicole Bianchi’s article (5 Rules for Writing Well) couldn’t have come at a better time for you.

“. . . [W]riting is not a craft we can master in a matter of hours or days. It takes years and years and perhaps can never be mastered at all.

But we can become better writers. We can improve day by day if we are willing to keep on practicing and putting in the hard work.

Writing is not something to be rushed through. It requires careful thought and reflection. It requires us to transpose the muddle of our thoughts onto paper and rearrange those thoughts in such a way that they can inspire our readers.

It can be a frustrating business. But, in the end, it is all worthwhile because we have the power to make the world a better place through our writing.”
