Staying true

Writing is hard. Avoiding resentment is hard. Staying true to your voice is hard. Janelle Hanchett talks about these things in a podcast on Unmistakeable Creative. The link is here. My favourite bits:

"We hate not being able to see whether or not our efforts are going to get us anywhere." 

"I had rather fail than be something I'm not." 

"I always get back to: Am I writing what I want to be writing in the way I want to be writing it. /.../ So I'm just gonna focus on being the best writer I can and telling the truth as accurately as I can."

I'm feeling brave again!
