Could be about writing, but is about any work, paid or unpaid.

"In my view a writer is a writer not because she writes well and easily, because she has amazing talent, because everything she does is golden. In my view a writer is a writer because even when there is no hope, even when nothing you do shows any sign of promise, you keep writing anyway."- Junot Diaz

Quote stolen from the wonderful Writer's Salon of SF and Berkeley:


  1. I couldn't agree more. I thought I was a writer, and I do write all the time, but I don't practice anymore. I don't put myself out there, like you have done here.

  2. The fear you hold up here, yes, I have those thoughts, ask those questions, too.
    Despite the fear, there's peace and love here, like aways in what you say.
