The Real Test is big. The choice is always hard and is often (but not always) a Turning Point. It attacks us deep and pits our heart against our head. It defines us. If we fail, we rarely do it all at once. We draw and redraw the line in the sand until consequence comes in and sweeps us away.
But writing does not have that line. If you missed yesterday, you can write today. Don’t hold onto the past. Don’t hold onto the losses.
