J. Scott Coatsworth: Writing is Hard

Nicholas C. Rossis

Author J. Scott Coatsworth recently shared on his blog a post titled Writing is Hard, which struck a chord with me. I’m sharing here a lightly edited version of his original post (with his permission, of course) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did 🙂

Writing is Hard

J. Scott Coatsworth | From the blog of Nicholas C. Rossis, author of science fiction, the Pearseus epic fantasy series and children's books Author J. Scott Coatsworth

Writing is what I love more than almost anything else in the world. But sometimes, being a writer is soul-crushingly hard.

I’m not talking about the writing itself. Writing can make me crazy, sure. There are times when the words just don’t come, and times when you just can’t sit down to write. And times (usually at the three-quarters point of the story) when you decide everything you write is crap.

But that’s par for the course.

What I’m talking about today is getting your work out there, and helping folks actually find it.
