Joe’s statement is profound. Life is a big black freight train. Your job is to position yourself next to the tracks, avoid a head-on collision, grab hold, and climb aboard before the train passes. You don’t live life sitting on the siding.
How does this quote relate to writing? For me, it means facing the onslaught, writing every day, pursuing opportunities, improvement, challenges and demanding more of my writing. When the train whizzes past I will have the skills to clamber aboard. Stretching beyond your comfort zone is tough. It is scary to grab hold and claim your place. The payoff promises a heady rush.
What are you doing today to run with life?
Keep on writing.
