Don't Give Up

It's been another fun week here for me at Unicorn Bell. The prompts you have come up with have been truly interesting. I'll have to think of some harder ones next time around, perhaps.

In the meantime, I leave you going into the weekend with some words of encouragement. Don't give up on your writing. Don't EVER give up. You could be much closer to accomplishing what you meant to set out to do. A little perseverance goes a long way. Only you have the power to lend your voice to a story that is truly yours. Every plot line has been used under the sun, but no one else can mimic your unique perspective. They'd fail if they did.

Keep fighting for your writing! Have a good weekend, and I'll see you next month. In the meantime, I've got a blog tour to get ready for. My fantasy novel, Spell of Entrapment, debuted last month in e-book format. I'm pleased to say that it's been an enjoyable debut thus far. So when I tell you not to give up, I hope you consider the fact that I've been on this writing journey for the past five years, and speak from personal experience.

Later all!

Those are wonderful words of encouragement. Coming from someone who can speak from experience gives them even more credence.

Have a great weekend and continued success with your debut novel.

Love your encouragement... we all need it sometimes... maybe more. It's great to have others to remind us to keep our chins up... thanks;)

Excellent advice. Sometimes it is hard to remember that success only comes with perseverance.

Congrats on your debut novel!

I always love when people post messages of encouragement. :) I just wrote a similar post not too long ago after reading a new book by one of my favorite authors. As much as I love her, I often wonder if I'll ever measure up to her!

Thanks for this!

Great reminder. As writers, it's hard to not want to give up. But perseverence is the best tool for an author. Thanks!
