"...Being stubborn is one of the most important keys to writing. Not giving up. Not succumbing to that voice in your head that says: Who cares? This sucks. This is too personal to write about. This is too hard to write. Why write about this stuff? Etc. etc..
...keep going. The only way to silence that negative voice in your head is by writing your way right past it, through it, over it."
