On Persistence

Standard

Goals are always free to own, but expensive to obtain.

I love being a writer. There is something magical in translating my thoughts into coherent stories. However, being a writer is much like being an actress or a singer. There’s more creators than there are people willing to purchase creations. Persistence, it seems, is the word on every writers lips.

I exchanged emails with a freelance writer who makes children’s books. He gave grammatical advice I sorely needed and then pointed me to two websites where I might find work. He also recommended I read a book called Self-Editing for Fiction Writers by Renni Browne.

Through all of his recommendations though, the word he kept repeating, in various synonyms and metaphors, was persistance.

Stay persistent when chasing after your dreams. You will get there.
