Quote: Writing is like selling water
I love writing, but some days it’s pretty hard. Ok, most days. And this little metaphor kind of popped into my head recently. It’s one way to look at writing. Not the only way, but I’ll bet many of my fellow authors can relate.
Ever meet a guy selling water in a rain storm? Writing is kind of like that for most writers. There is a deluge of words out there.
But still we shoulder on. Because the elliptical truth is that writing is an act of faith that somehow, somewhere, someone is thirsty even amidst all that rain.
