Write what you love and love what you write.
Can you love and hate something at the same time? Sure you can. For instance, I love writing, and yet I hate it. It’s so frustrating not being able to write all day, every day. For me this leads to lethargy, so that when I do have the time, I don’t have the inclination or the energy.
As for marketing my work… pfft!
The love affair between me and my writing has more than its fair shares of ups and downs. In spite of this, it’s a path I’ll stick to, until I’m either too senile to pick up a pen, or I’ve gone to that great writing group in the sky. 🙂
