Amazing Year Day 314: Accountability to the Rescue

15 Jan

Fame is a powerful spotlight and casts a shadow over the cast of characters who play integral roles in helping said celebrity rise to fame. Behind every writer, is a parade of struggles and doubts. It’s difficult to continue, but in the end all we must do is tend to our trade. When family and friends are supportive but able to fully grasp the spoil and toil of such a craft, it’s easy for a writer to feel alone. But there are many walking similar paths who can be of assistance and truly push us back on the road. I’m lucky to know a fellow writer willing to trust me enough to embark on an “accountability partnership.” While this may entail critiques and advice, it’s more like confession. We are sworn to report our weekly progress towards our hefty, yet achievable goals. I’m looking forward to challenging each other as we share the often unpublicized daily struggle to hone one’s routines and craft into legacy.
