“There's a secret that real writers know that wannabe writers don't, and the secret is this: It's not the writing part that's hard. What's hard is sitting down to write. What keeps us from sitting down is Resistance.” ~ Steven Pressfield
And that 'Resistance' that he is talking about here is that little inner critic in the bleachers of our minds, found in every vocation. It's self-imposed job is to heckle and berate, telling me that I will never be good enough and to just pack it in. My job is to rise above the baited taunting by remembering my purpose for being: to live, to love, and to express that passion in whatever way Love inspires me to pursue.
