Writing is not easy.
I don’t know where I got the impression that it was a simple task of throwing words on the page and voila!
I love the simple sentence of “practicing medicine/ practicing law”.
It signifies that this professional is in a continuous process of learning and relearning, trial and error, and no matter how long they spend doing what they do, they’ll always be considered “practitioners”.
Well, I’m a practicing writer.
Everything requires practice, though. Everything.
Be it virtues, skills – physical or psychological – using chopsticks or smiling when life tests your limits, everything comes down to practice.
Like the wind practicing silence before it unleashes the storm.
Like the ocean practicing its movement before unleashing the tsunami.
Like the caterpillar practicing its endurance as a cocoon before morphing into a beautiful butterfly.
What are you waiting for, friend? If you’re not doing so already, then start practicing.
