Recently, I was asked by my publisher for writing advice tips. The first thing that popped into my head was, “Never give up, Never surrender.” Yes, it is from Galaxy Quest, but the message is universal.
I can not stress enough how important it is to believe in yourself and your writing and keep on keeping on. As a writer, you are your own greatest fan. You have to love what you are writing and it will show in what you produce.
Writing today is not just about talent, it is about perseverance. You will face rejection, you will face failure, you will face criticism, and you will have to bear through all of that if you want to succeed. The grace with which you handle those obstacles will guide you in the future.
This is my advice to anyone who wants to write or accomplish anything for that matter. To quote my grandma, “Nobody ever got nothing from working their tails off. Even if it was only a blister.” Just keep on, keeping on and you will accomplish what you set out to do. My two cents for the day! Hope the week is short and full of fun!
