What most people don’t realize, and certainly for me, the hard part is getting it polished and published.

As one just starting “the hard part” for the first time, your statement reminded me of a favorite author of mine (from his speech to the Arbonne):

President Theodore Roosevelt – April, 1910

It is war-worn Hotspur, spent with hard fighting, he of the many errors and valiant end, over whose memory we love to linger, not over the memory of the young lord who “but for the vile guns would have been a valiant soldier.”
