Ummm... Is it weird that I'm dying to see this? Is it because I remember the original movie? Or, is it because succeeding as a writer feels like this trailer sometimes?
I think it's the latter.
I have always equated pursuing publication to being an athlete because that's what it feels like. It's mentally grueling and requires so much work, but it's so rewarding at the same time. This trailer reminded me again that writing, like sports, takes HONOR, and COURAGE, and STRENGTH to succeed.
We have to believe.
We have to work hard.
And, we have to never give up.
And all those times little Jaden (Will Smith's son) has to take his coat off and put it back on is like when we have to revise.
Because one day...
We'll be ready.
To take the publishing world by storm.

Thanks Mr. Miyagi!!!
