Words for Writers Wednesday: Writers Are Like Boxers in the Ring

You are the boxer in the ring.

Your opponent? All those knuckleheads who doubt you.

“Do you really think you’ll make it?”

“Writing isn’t a real work. Get a job.”

You freaking sucker punch them in the jaw with your talent.

Hey, remember the supporters in your corner.

Family, friends, teachers, classmates, the true believers.

Stick with them, they will get you through this fight, and every other fight

And stand beside you when you become a champion.

Forget about the people in your life who doubt you and make you feel bad about your passions. Focus on the ones who will support you through everything.

Write with Heart,

Lady Jabberwocky
