Just Keep Writing


"If you write one story, it may be bad; if you write a hundred, you have the odds in your favor."

-Edgar Rice Burroughs
 
This is a truth I keep reminding myself of when I am certain that everything I've ever written is horrible. Just keep writing. And may the odds be ever in your favor!! (Sorry, I couldn't resist). ;)

Another word and closer to the goal I always say! Like that quote!

Yes, plus if you STOP writing you also have the obstacle of trying to START again...that can be VERY hard (ahem, or so I've heard)

Any skill takes practice, and the more one practices, the more one's skill grow. Ask any musician.

So true! I wrote seven novels before I got a yes.

This is advice we need to hear and read again and again. Thanks for the reminder.

Truer words were never spoken! Thanks for the reminder... it can be so hard to keep perspective!

By the way, I admire your ability to write such a succinct and perfect post, and MY ability to write a comment that's longer that the post :)

Terrific quote and words to live by!

These words are so true! We improve the more we write. We eventually write something others want. I'm proof seven novels later and finally I sell.
