Writers hear this advice over and over again. Then we create excuses why we can’t–beautiful excuses filled with empty air and hyperbole and then promises to ourselves to do better.
Samuel Beckett says “fail better” but if you aren’t trying, you can’t fail. I guess you can fail to try but you’ll never get better at that.
Today is my promise to myself to fail better and then hopefully succeed.
If you are also a writer–or a person with a passion–come along, fail better with me.
