Writing by Christine Duncan

It’s ninety-five degrees here in Colorado today and all I want to do is play.  I just got back from a camping trip where I slept by the Blue river and listened to birds, and crickets and people kayaking and rafting down the river.

For inspiration, I went back to Michelle’s post about how much writers make now.  And having read it, I wonder yet again, why bother hammering on this keyboard?

But she is right.  We are losing voices.  I have known many writers over the years and I’ve seen many give up.  So I’m going to end with some quotes that maybe you need as much as I do.

“Never give up on a dream just because of the time it takes to accomplish it.  The time will pass anyway.”  Earl Nightingale

“Nothing in the world can take the place of perseverance. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost legendary. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Perseverance and determination alone are omnipotent.” Calvin Coolidge

And my favorite Nelson Mandela quote:  “I never lose.  I either win or learn.”
