As The World Turns The Scribe Writes

Another day in the books and more words on the page.

What have you written and will time be good to it or will derision prevail? The never-ending lament of authors everywhere. It's difficult to write and much harder to accept the idea that it's worthless to some people.

Don't feel bad. Someone, somewhere will be glad to tell you how terrible your work is, even if they don't just ignore it to begin with. What do they know? You will always have your friends, Mom or some other admirer who will boost your ego.

Writing is the sublime torment that only an intelligent mind can appreciate.

The difficulty in finding a word or phrase to fit and convey the thought of the moment.

Once you have done this, it can ring down through the ages.

Few other things are so timeless.
