Literature, Quotes

This is the practice school of writing. Like running, the more you do it, the better you get at it. Some days you don’t want to run and resist every step of the three miles, but you do it anyway.You practice whether you want to or not.You don’t wait around for inspiration and a deep desire to run. It’ll never happen, epsecially if you’re out of shape and have been avoiding it. But if you run regularly, you train your mind to cut through or ignore your resistance. You just do it. And in the middle of the run, you love it. When you come to the end, you never want to stop. And you stop, hungry for the next time.

That’s how writing is, too.
