• If you are not discouraged about your writing on a regular basis, you may not be trying hard enough. Any challenging pursuit will encounter frequent patches of frustration. Writing is nothing if not challenging.

A subtle non-prompt for this week from a non-writing prompt book...

Use It or Lose It

Raise your hand if you tell the same stories over and over: that tale you tell about your twentieth college reunion, the Thanksgiving debacle, the Seder-masochistic tale of woe. 

What if I said you could never tell them again unless you first wrote them down, that you'd lose them if you didn't use them? 

I think you'd write them down.

--Marion Roach Smith, The Memoir Project: A Thoroughly Non-Standardized Text for Writing & Life
