Too much information? LOL
It hurts because I've been working out at the gym. I just started last week and I'm probably not as sore as I should be, but there is a twinge here and there, just enough to tell me something is getting exercise.
Do I like to work out? NO WAY! But I do it because I want the end product: toned muscles and a strong inside (you know, whatever is supposed to get better because I'm exercising, lol).
I read many, many blogs. Especially yours. One thing we all have in common is our frustration with fitting writing into our busy schedules.
And sometimes, we just plain don't want to write. I'll confess: the other night I watched two shows on my computer instead of writing. No busy schedule there, just a lazy writer. :-)
The thing is, if we want the end product, if we want to finish a manuscript and pursue publication, then we need to force ourselves to write.
It's not always fun, passionate or exciting. It's work. And like work, when well-done, it will pay off. Even if only with a sense of accomplishment.
Do you sometimes find writing painful? As if stretching your creative juices is like trying to do the splits?
