Writing Is Worth the Effort, Whether or Not the Work Gets Published

 

When all’s said and done, regardless of what our hopes may be for publication or recognition for our writing, we write for ourselves. I encourage you to write what’s most meaningful to you. Do the best you can. Maybe some of your work will be published, and maybe this will bring some satisfaction; maybe not. But if you write and write and do your best at it, then what can you be absolutely sure will happen? You will have a more meaningful life.
