“Every artist was first an amateur.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
This quote speaks to the hard work, dedication, persistence, and resilience it takes to be good at something, whether it’s poetry, writing, drawing, or even playing an instrument. It takes a lot of practice to get good at anything.
When you first start something be easy on yourself. Not everyone will be a Mark Twain, Ralph Waldo Emerson, or Stephen King. But you do you have your own unique voice and there will be people who are interested in hearing what you have to say. Start there!
Until next time…
