In spite of support, opposition or doubt–continue.
It is a powerful word, continue. For a writer, it means you have or should be endowed with enough strength to complete that which you have started. Regardless of how long it takes. Regardless of who thinks you can’t. As a writer, continue is your superpower.
No matter how long is has been to start, no matter how long it may take to finish. Activate your continue. That, dear one, is at the core of all writers.
Embrace that which is uncomfortable. Sometimes to get at what it is you want from a work, you have to wrestle with it. You have to be both writer and reader!
Answer the questions that need to be answered. Veil the things you want your readers to sit with. But wrestle, my dear ones. Be prepared to wrestle. The writing will be fun, the ride will be wild. Just beware of the curves.
Writers are readers, inquisitive about the world around them so they can create another. If you’re stuck in process of creating an WIP and become discouraged, take a break. Fill up that blank time with a book.
