I ran across this wonderful post by Albert Berg about working on the things we don’t do well or necessarily enjoy. For each of us, there is some aspect (or several) of our writing practice that we don’t excel at or gravitate toward. Life being what it is, that’s often the very thing that would take us to the next level as writers.
The discipline we need to develop our craft doesn’t come easy, unlike our propensity to fall short of the goals we set for ourselves. Thankfully, each day gives us a new opportunity to try again and timely reminders from fellow travelers to give us a much-needed boost.
