"A word is not the same with one writer as with another. One tears it from his guts. The other pulls it out of his overcoat pocket." -Charles Peguy
I see this quote as the diffeence between journalism and fiction, both of which I have written. Just a sec...fiction and poetry and then Journalism. Though they all take skill different mechanisms are used in each.

True, This! — Beneath the rule of men entirely great, The pen is mightier than the sword. Behold The arch-enchanters wand! — itself a nothing! — But taking sorcery from the master-hand To paralyse the Cæsars, and to strike The loud earth breathless! — Take away the sword — States can be saved without it!
Edward Bulwer-Lytton, 1839
I just love this, and though it doesn't have much to do with fitness, it reminds me, during those times when it seems as if no one will ever consider my writing worthwhile, that there is always hope, and that all we can do in life is to forge on in spite of self-doubt and fear of obscurity. So, forge on, because time passes and we can only move forward.
