In an article titled, "Love to Write? Keep It to Yourself," Rachel Toor explores her emotional reaction to people who claim that they love to write. She argues that writing is hard and exhausting work--a daunting exercise--and then gives hints on how to make it manageable, such as establishing a routine and knowing one's productivity limits. She ends by describing her hellish experience running a 50K race in rugged terrain in the heat of August--tremendously hard work. But not as hard as writing.
