Mistakes are a given. Winning is an endurance test. How many years can you write and not give up? That’s the real test, and you can pass it and feel the power of victory as a writer by helping strangers with their problems or changing how they think about something.
If Medium ever starts giving out awards for originality you’re going to need to consider building an extra room. You really knocked it out of the park with this one.
I love this analogy and it makes a lot of sense. I recently wrote about writing being about a lot more than just the writing itself. It really is a process, and all of it is a part of an even larger whole.
“Winning is an endurance test…” ← this is gold.
