The labor of crafting the written word into meaningful, long-form art is a labor of commitment and a true testament to the patience and mental strength of the writer.
As you shape your stories and craft your arguments, remember focus, poise, and a clear mind will help you get through the mental blocks, and paint tapestries with your written art.
Stay away from the naysayers, and embrace the steps of the process without seeking shortcuts or hacks to short change the beauty you are creating.
You may need to put some obligations to the side to focus. And you may have to relax a few friendships to get through the pages and focus on the art.
Remember to go at your own pace. Plan how far you will get and in what amount of time you plan to get there.
Roadmaps, plans, diagrams, visuals, all help.
Focus and love your journey everyday.
