I am loving the literary life here at Squaw. I don't know if it will make me a better writer, but it certainly makes me aware that this craft is not easy. The message over and over is that it is hard and requires daily practice. Even the award winning authors here say that. So when we are feeling defeated by our muse it is good to remember that no one has it easy but we can 't make quitting an option. Imagine if Shakespeare did that.
