Writing and the Olympics

**Written on July 31, 2012**
I just wanted to write a quick note on the Olympics and what it means to me as a writer. I love watching the Olympics. There is nothing like watching the visual splendor that represents the years and hundreds, if not thousands of hours these athletes have put in for a few minutes of glory.
I don’t want to sound sacrilegious by comparing writing to the Olympics but the same processes are there. There are years that go into training and honing the craft and the body is affected in either way (for writers it is probably not the six pack abs that the swimmers usually get).
There is not much point to this entry, except to serve as a reminder to myself that if I ever get impatient or discouraged with writing, that I am at the beginning of a very long journey and I had better buckle in and enjoy the adventure that is that journey. As well as to shut the hell up and get back to writing.
Enjoy the rest of the Olympics everyone!
