Do you ever have days where you wonder if you're just wasting time writing?
Or moments where you feel your writing isn't good enough—or literary, deep, touching or ____________ (fill in the blank) enough? At one time or another, most of us have felt that way. We've had a bad day, received a disheartening critique or an unexpected rejection, or ended up with writer's block. It's enough to make a writer feel like giving up.

Don't. Don't give up. What you do as a writer has worth.

If you find it hard to believe me, then take it from a man who knows. Click on this video and listen to the words of Elder Uchtdorf about creativity and the place it holds in life.

I love this clip. The music is timed perfectly and by the end of of it, there is a surge in the spirit in the air. I felt edified, uplifted, encouraged, and beloved. What a compassionate, needed message.
