Courtesy of Jordan E. Rosenfeld  “I have a simple philosophy in all that I do: “Practice. Polish. Persist.” Make your writing life into an ongoing, deep writing practice that can survive the test of time, discouragement and change. Never stop trying to become better and polish your work, learn new things, take classes and feed both your muse and your craft. But what will set you apart is your persistence.

Don’t give up.”write4
