You’ll go through your life as a writer and a productive member of society while struggling. You will always struggle at something. There are inevitabilities in this life, and this fact is just one of them. Truthfully, the best thing to do is to learn how to deal with struggle, and the pain that it may generate. I was 27 and only began to understand what this really means.
You’ll learn by doing, you’ll fail by doing, and you’ll do by learning. It’s an endless fucking cycle. But wouldn’t you rather ride the Ferris wheel instead of slobbering on your ice cream cone watching those that bought the tickets and got on for the ride?
