Sometimes the words come easy. Sometimes they don’t.
That’s not an excuse to stop writing.
Athletes don’t just play when the sun is shining, when their body is in perfect condition, when they feel like playing, and when they’re at the top of their game. They play because they must. They play even when the circumstances are far from optimal.
They play hurt.
The best warriors have their weaknesses. Their imperfections threaten to undo them when they face the enemy. Yet they must engage, fight, win.
Warriors fight scared.
So it is with those who write. There’s only one way to write most of the time.
