You have to be careful about the word passion.
Passion will not change the work load
Who calls themselves a writer but quits after a publication rejects an article?
Who’s passionate about football but doesn’t bother to study film?
Who’s passionate about the outdoors but doesn’t care to learn how to build a shelter?
Life would be grand if passion were the answer. If I could open my laptop, write three beautiful paragraphs and receive 10,000 claps. That’s the dream — more like fantasy.
You might think you're following a passion by writing online, but that does not shelter anyone from the hours of research, the agony of the first draft, the rejections. The injustices.
I have a better word: grit.
