When something can be read without effort, great effort has gone into its writing ~ Enrique Jardiel Poncela
So I’m on this journey to develop a daily writing habit and that’s part of the whole purpose of and inspiration behind this 31-day writing challenge.
As a result, I’ve been doing quite a bit (okay, really, a lot) of reading about writing and how to be consistent at it.
For that reason, today’s quote connected with me because I am trying to learn how to write so that my writing is readable by and enjoyable to others and I’m learning that finding that balance takes great effort.
So it’s no surprise that in this season of my writing life these words of Enrique Jardiel Poncela, the Spanish playwright and novelist, especially connected with me.
It’s easy enough to open a blank journal page or launch the blank screen for a new blog post and just write or type away… But getting it to be a piece of work that someone else can read effortlessly and appreciate takes a lot more effort.
This daily writing challenge is surely helping me learn how to turn my thoughts into more cohesive written stories that can be easily read without much effort and be engaging at the same time.
I don’t think I’m there yet (I feel very far away from it actually) but I knew it would be a learning process. What I didn’t know and I’m just figuring out is that it will probably be a skill I will never fully feel 100% good at.
I’m looking forward to reading what quotes speak to others who take part in this blogging/writing challenge. If that’s you, please let me know in the comments section below and I’ll link to your post right here for others to check out too 🙂
