Today I read Robert Lee Brewer's "Poetic Asides" blog. He interviewed poet Cherryl Floyd-Miller, and she said: "Write! And then write some more. When you feel like you truly (((can))) *quit* writing, then you should quit ..."
It seems almost an answer to what I wrote on Wednesday about toying with the idea of quitting. Don't do it unless you feel like you actually can. I don't feel that way, so I am definitely not quitting. I am still a writer.
