What if the Work Doesn’t Make You Great?

Writing is at least a form of creative expression, the process of which offers satisfaction. Even if this is all that writing is, it can bring joy even if it never brings a successful career (whatever success looks like to any individual person.)

Are you willing to do the work even if it doesn’t make you great?

Will the work itself satisfy you?

Do you enjoy being part of a community of other people doing the same work?

Are you willing to risk the rejection it will take to actually find out how far you can take this thing?

So . . .

Writing is at least a form of creative expression, the process of which offers satisfaction. Even if this is all that writing is, it can bring you joy even if you never become a bestseller.
