Writing is hard. Even writing a paragraph.
You get an idea. You sketch it out until you’ve covered the ground…then you wait.
You take the best parts up a level…then you wait.
As the rest of the piece comes together, you start to know what this paragraph is really doing, so you revise your paragraph some more, planting seeds or tightening connections…then you wait.
And finally, you recite it to yourself for the real music and meaning.
So yes, writing is hard. But it’s easier if you pick stuff you care about. In fact, that might be the only way we ever finish with style.
