- Do you have more respect for others if there’s a cost accrued with their dedication?
- As writers, we’re often yammering about retreating into our caves and putting our noses to the grindstone, as well as other similar unappealing descriptors for how we go about our work. Do you ever feel pressured to construct a battle-charge answer for how things are going? (Are you afraid if you’re having fun, it means you’re not working hard enough?)
- If writing comes naturally to someone, do you automatically assume they aren’t working as diligently to hone their craft as one who devotes large quantities of time soaking up how to improve?
- What causes you to lose your commitment to dedication?
- Are you secretly proud sharing all you’ve had to sacrifice in your current field in order to gain strides (i.e. loss of time with family, abstaining from TV or girls night out)?
- How would you define dedication?
- Do the ends justify the means when it comes to all you’re pouring in?
- What would motivate you to become so dedicated to something you’d actually break every bone in your body?
Answer any or all of the above. I might do an I 8 Wed. break-out for these like I’ve done in the past. I’m playing with that idea.
*I also read somewhere Jackie Chan has broken more bones than his age. Don’t know if this is true either, but I’ve seen some of his movies and I’d bet on it.
