Thank you very much for that. I needed to read it after a disappointing year.


You make several great points. I especially like your advice of writing for the sake of writing. I really discovered writing when I was going through nursing school and I can honestly say it was my main survival tool.


"So what should we do? In two words: Keep writing. In three more: Your own stuff."

That's 100% win. Thanks for the reminder.
