I’ve said it before and I don’t mine repeating it: The # 1 thing you need if you want to make it as a writer—and I’ll leave it to you to define “making it” for yourself—is not talent, training, connections, or luck. It’s perseverance—the ability to keep your fingers to the keyboard or your pen to the page whether your writing is soaring or slumping.
Perseverance isn’t magical. It isn’t bestowed on us by the gods. We’re not born with it. It’s something we can choose. It isn’t always…Continue

I have a confession. I love to scroll through Pinterest during my evening television time. And because I try to justify this little time-waster as platform building, I have a board titled Writing. I usually pin writing quotes, pithy inspirations, or beautiful writing settings. But lately, I haven’t been pinning much of anything on that board.
