Musings, Writing

Sometimes one word says it all

I stumbled on this picture yesterday and was wowed by it. Firstly, it really sums up what’s driving me at the moment. Edging into stalking territory (!) as I read up on how other writers “made it”, this words crops up again and again. Writing means rejection and coping with it pretty much throughout the journey. So much advice out there can be summarised as telling you to persist, keep going and not to give up if you want to get published one day.

This picture also spoke to me because it could have been the design for the book cover of the story I’m submitting to agents. The title of my YA work is PIGEON STEPS and it’s set in a holiday destination so the images of footprints in the sand works perfectly.

I’m hoping finding this word with this image is a positive sign that if I keep persisting good things will happen for my story. If not, it was just a pretty big concidence 🙂

  1. Persistence is the key. Thanks for sharing this. As a writer, I can relate too. But I have surprised myself by how far I have come by sticking to what I love. You rarely notice your own progress as you go along, its only when you turn around to see how far you’ve come do you realise. Good luck to you and your writing endeavors! 🙂

  2. Great image. I think all signs are signs as long as you believe in them. So if we continue to persist, one step at a time, we will both reach our goals.

  3. I don’t believe in coincidence – everything happens for a definite reason. Keep up the good work – all your persistence will pay off. 🙂
