I’m not going to wax religious, but the other day I read a passage in the Bible that made me think of the principal of persistence. Here is the passage:
Luke 11:9: “Keep on asking, and it will be given you; keep on seeking, and you will find; keep on knocking, and it will be opened to you.”
Of course this is in relation to our prayers, but I thought, hey, why can’t I apply this same principal to writing? Basically the scripture in reference is about persistence. Persistence pays off. So, to you would-be best-selling author’s out there (myself included), let’s keep reading, let’s keep writing, let’s keep blogging and building our platform’s, let’s keep knocking on agent’s “doors” with our query letters. Let’s keep the faith that something good will come out of our passion for writing.
