Gardening and Writing

“The fair weather gardener, who shall do nothing except when the wind and weather are favorable, will never master his craft.”

Gardening takes persistent and patience and a willingness to get your hands and fingers dirty as you dig in to eliminate weeds and encourage plants.  If you only go out on warm days and dabble in the backyard, you won’t produce a plentiful, abundant garden.

The same thought applies to writing as well. If you only write when inspiration hits and wording flows, you won’t master your craft.

Writing takes the same persistence, patience and hard work. Sometimes the writer needs to sit at your desk and fight your way past that blank page.  Some days, you have to spend long stretches editing just as the gardener has to spend hours weeding.
