This comment by Dan B on the post When Should You Stop Calling Yourself An Aspiring Writer
This is a great article and emphasizes the practice of focusing on the process rather than the result. You are a writer regardless of whether people agree, disagree, or even like what you are writing about and you write for your own enjoyment. This reminds me of George McFly in Back To the Future.
Marty: What are you writing?
George: Stories, science fiction stories. About visitors coming down to Earth from other planets.
Marty: Get out of town! I didn’t know you did anything creative, let me read some…
George: No, no.I never let anybody read my stories.
Marty: Why not?
George: Well, what if they didn’t like them, what if they told me I was no good?
Question of the Day:
Since it takes 10,000 hours to be good at anything, should we not teach that process is king not the result?
