In all actuality, it's pretty brutal.
But, you know what? That's why I love it.
There are no easy routes.
No easy answers.
All it boils down to is you and your writing.
In the end, you are your own worst enemy, own worst critic, own best reader and best understander of your work. You are the reason things are created and slashed and rebuilt and destroyed. You are the one who is bringing a story to life, from your mind to the page.
You are the reason. I am the reason.
We are writers.
We will write on.
