They know how to stick things through — to push hard and achieve a goal and move on to the next project.
Mostly, they understand that until they publish their work, until other eyeballs are on it, it might as well be invisible. ~ Jeff Goins
Yesterday I had a wonderful feeling as I walked through Brooklyn on the way home from work. I truly felt like I was closer than ever to the big dream of becoming a published author. Just the mere thought was enough to put a spring in my step, despite soaring record high temperatures that literally baked me on the asphalt.
The thing is, every artist knows that there are days when you feel like you are on the right track and getting closer to the goal and then there are days when you feel like you couldn't be farther. But the truth is that I am closer. I am closer to my goal because of one thing...perseverance.
Every day I spent time pursuing my dream I get closer.
I am even closer than I was a month ago because today I have more manuscripts than a month ago. I have more ideas, more contacts in the business, more confidence...
Every writer has a choice.
One month from today can be simply a month that has gone by. Or it can be one month closer.
Great writers persevere. I choose to, as well.
