And here alsonbsp;nbsp;is a larger vision of the writer's task:nbsp;nbsp;balancing daily responsibilities with a commitment tonbsp;nbsp;writing; knowing when to take risks as a writer and anbsp;nbsp;human being; coming to terms with success andnbsp;nbsp;failure and loss; and learning self-acceptance -- bothnbsp;nbsp;in life and art.

Pretty good! It definitely got me to pick up my pen more. Here "Try this" sections are very thought provoking.
