As you may have noticed, I do not incorporate many of the advantages of the multimedia capacity of a blogging platform into my posts. That’s not likely to change any time soon. But I did want to take some time out this month to share some fun, inspirational music.
Standing Outside the Fire
(Apologies. For some reason the video would not embed.)
For many of us, writing isn’t the hard part. Sure, there’s a lot to learn. We put our hearts and souls into our work. We try again and again to make the words we write fit all our imaginations tell us they can be. But, as hard as this is, taking the risks that comes with a writer’s life is harder still.
We want our work to be read, but it’s a risk to share it. We want our work to be published, but it’s a risk to submit it. We want our work to reach readers, but it’s a risk to market it.
You’re only living half the writing life if you’re standing outside the fire. Take those risks. They’re worth it.
