The Writing Life - Where Does Discipline Fit In?
What more important? Discipline or self-forgiveness?
"I believe that if you are serious about a life of writing... that you should take on this work like a holy calling.....As for discipline -- it's important but sort of over rated. The more important virtue of being a writer, I believe, is self-forgiveness. because your writing will always disappoint you. Your laziness will always disappoint you. Continuing to write after that heartache of disappointment doesn't only take discipline, but also self -forgiveness." ~ Elizabeth Gilbert
