When writing feels daunting and I don’t know what direction to go next, I read things like this and suddenly I feel inspired.

“Are you a born writer?  Were you put on earth to be a painter, a scientist, an apostle of peace?  In the end the question can only be answered by action.  Do it or don’t do it.

“Creative work is not a selfish act or a bid for attention on the part of the actor.  It’s a gift to the world and every being in it.  Don’t cheat us of your contribution.  Give us what you’ve got.”

– Steven Pressfield The War of Art

It may not make the process easier, but I remain vigilant and continue to commit myself to the end.

What inspires you to keep going?
