Tip for Tuesday: Writing Related- (P squared)

Find Your Passion and Be Persistent!

It's as simple as that.

And as hard as that.

People search, sometimes a lifetime, to find the one thing that sets their soul on fire.

If you already know you love to write, you're way ahead in the game.

Then you've got to send out your work, whether it's to a magazine, a newspaper, or a book publisher, it doesn't matter. Just send it out-of course you'll have to figure out which one is appropriate. But then, and this is the BIG important part of the tip, be persistent.

It's like one of those cheers from the high school drill team:

B.E. P.E.R.S.I.S.T.E.N.T.

It's like Rose said in Titantic, "I'll never let go."

Of my dreams.

And don't you let go either. We all need to hold on to our dreams.

Persistent is definitely key in this biz!

Great advice. I am reading "Bird by Bird" by Anne Lamont and it is kind of overwhelming and a little depressing although she tries to be funny about it. I like P squared, simple yet effective.
