“Perseverance is the hard work you do after you get tired of doing the hard work you already did.”
— Dr. Joel Freeman
I’m not sure if Dr. Freeman said that himself, or if he got it from someone else, but it’s sure a great thing to keep in mind.
The last thing I want to do right now is continue edits on my 2007 NaNoWriMo manuscript, but it’s been such a long time coming that I refuse to give up halfway through. It’s a tough slog. It’s discouraging, and extremely time-consuming.
But it’s also a great lesson in perseverance! Because if I don’t do it, nobody else will, and that’s a disservice to a story I believe in.
What are you persevering through this week, writing-related or otherwise?
