If they knock you down, you get up. If they knock you down again, get up. No matter how many times they knock you down, get up again. That is how you should go. (Katagiri Roshi)
Writing, or any creative discipline takes practice.
Once you begin, you question why it took you so long to get started and dive in.
Suddenly, you are lost in your art, you become obsessed until your fingers and imagination burn out.
It’s through practice that we get better.
“You learn to trust your deep self more and not give in to your voice that wants to avoid writing.” (Natalie Goldberg)
