We all say it is our dream to be writers. But it takes more than just dreaming to get there. I think it takes Daily writing and Dedication.
Daily writing- Daily may be too far for some but every word, sentence, paragraph, essay, journal entry makes you better. If you want to be in shape you work out every day. If you want to be a writer write daily.
Dedication- Rejection is hard. It may take a year or two for a writer to become a published author or it may take 12 years. That can be a lot of time and rejection letters. Dedication will keep you going.
I've wanted to be a writer for a long time. I took writing classes. I wrote. I submitted. I got rejection letters. I quit writing. I thought I was done with writing. Writing was not done with me. I write. I submit. I get rejections. I keep writing because I am dedicated to a writing life.
