Persistence is one of our greatest tools!  Many obstacles, both internal and external, will want to thwart you – but I encourage you to press on, push forward, and persist!

My biggest struggle lies within myself. Fear and self-doubt find ways to plague me and slow me down. But never for long. I get right into action – be it a working manuscript, a new draft, a poem, editing a colleague’s work, etc. It always helps me to persist with anything, big or small, that pulls me closer to my goal(s).
