Fighting resistance to failure is a bigger problem that failure itself

It’s okay. You can stop. We all can.

Stop resisting failure and stop fighting failure and stop fighting your resistance to failure. All this fighting just adds a whole other level of energy-sucking, mood-killing and creativity-busting. We can also stop trying to think positive. And forget about star-reaching or being-like [fill in the blank]. We can, however, hold a goal very loosely (or forget it completely) and accept we need to do what writers need to do: write, revise, send what you write, what you’ve worked on, that has sprung from deep within your soul, your heart.
