Quote I love: It’s supposed to be hard

Once a week, I post a quote that I’ve read/heard recently. So here’s this week’s Quote I love …

“Everyone thinks they can write a book. The only people who really know how hard it is are the ones who have tried.”

I like statements like this. They help keep me sane. Writing isn’t always easy, but it is also one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. There’s nothing like opening a blank document and filling it with words until you have a story you love, characters you’re proud of, a romance that inspires.

Any other writers feel the same? How about you readers … do any of you have aspirations to write a book? Comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.

  1. I totally agree with you, Sloan. No one can understand the amount of labor or love that goes into writing, or the sense of accomplishment until they embark on that journey for themselves.

  2. Thanks for the comment, Connie. It truly is a labor of love. Such a rush when you finish your manuscript and know it was because of your own imagination and hard work that you got that far. Good luck with your writing!
