The artist’s path is often a lonely one, a discouraging one, but it doesn’t have to be. Through my forthcoming book A Writer’s Guide to Persistence, I’ve had the good fortune to talk to a lot of writers about what has kept them persistent and on the path all these years. Beginning Monday, I’ll have a new story of persistence, or an interview with a persistent writer, every week. There will also be chances to win free copies of my books by answering questions posed by the participants.
Please keep checking back here, if you’re lonely or discouraged. Remember: commitment to the craft requires joy and love of the process. Figure out how to do that first, and you’re well on your way.
