Just gonna send Rachael’s excellent advice to young enquiring minds from now on. Make sure you click the “read more” button.
Sometimes I get emails from young people—young people younger than me! babies emailing babies!—who have questions about how I started writing and how…
“Even writers who SEEM totally legit—a lot of them do not FEEL legit. And if you’re doing it right you’re always going to be “aspiring” to something just beyond where you are now. That’s another thing—welcome to never feeling like your work is done! You might have moments of pride and accomplishment and professional/spiritual/etc satisfaction, but they will soon be replaced by some other intense gnawing ache that you have to go chase away with… more writing. It never ends.” - Rachel Maddux
This is all very true.
