Effort only fully releases its reward after a person refuses to quit.
There’s some people who get a release from writing or maybe even rainy days, but in this post we’re going to talk about the great release from writing. This doesn’t always happen. But when you get that feeling like, “oh ok, I feel better now.” it usually means you put a significant about of effort into what you’re wrote. Even if it was before you started typing.
Writing is like any other skill. It requires determination, sacrifices, and hard work. Don’t let those words intimidate you. These words have a big bite. The truth is, if you’re intentionally writing something, a thought, an idea, an outline, a response, everyday, that’s amazing. Take note of it, and slowly add more to your word count over time. It’s worth it. It’s worth that feeling of pushing through when you thought you couldn’t.
Yes, push through, but you can’t chase the release. The release comes with letting go. The letting go is different for everyone. Some writers need to forgive themselves for something, some writers need to accept where they are in life and some need to forgive. There’s a million things that we need to let go of before we write. And figuring that out then writing it out is art in opinion.
So write everyday with intention. Don’t chase the release and learn when to let go. This is where the release may find you.
