Advice for Writers–Yet Another Metaphor for Writing

This metaphor doesn’t come from me, but rather from Elizabeth Haugen, the pastor of Washington Plaza Baptist Church in Reston. She compare writing to running a marathon.

I was a runner, once, in my twenties and thirties, although walking for exercise is now more my style. I actually ran in a race, a 10K in which I came in dead last. I was never fast, but I was tenacious.
