Nobility according to Gail Sher

One Continuous Mistake: Four Noble Truths for Writers, is one of the best books about writing ever.  The author is Gail Sher, a Zen Buddhist psychotherapist. Her four truths:

  1. Writers write
  2. Writing is a process
  3. You don’t know what your writing will be until the end of the process
  4. If writing is your practice, the only way to fail is not to write

I know these truths to be true, and I’m reminded of the third truth every time I write.
