Writers, we are warriors.

This crazy artsy thing we’re doing, authoring books, is a monumental (yet wonderful) endeavor. For lack for better descriptions, we are Frodo hauling that ONE RING to MOUNT DOOM! Crap is going to show up in the droves to try and prevent it from happening. I wish I knew why we are tested like that. Maybe the Muses demand a price for artistic glory. Perhaps the challenges we face and the obstacles to overcome in the journey to create and get works out is not for the faint. It is a weird process that happens every time! Artists—Creators—we are warriors and heroes!

I am writing this on the fringes of what creative energy I have left. With the addition of family members to our home, my time has further slipped from my grasp, my rhythmic, flow of energy haggard. They need the love and help I can provide through other skills I possess, but it can be too easy to lose myself in all the shuffle. Not. This. Time.

Writers, we are warriors.
