A Talent for Writing

It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous. ~Robert Benchley


Are you a talented writer or are you like many published authors...persistent. Many authors will tell you that they don't believe they are the most talented, they just didn't give up. I don't know about you, but that motivates me. It's not to say you shouldn't try to improve your craft. Like anything the more you work at it the better you become. Almost effortlessly if you count daily writing as effortless. To make a habit stick, the rule is to do it for at least thirty days. Can you commit to thirty days? Sure you can, now get back to work. Talented writers give up every day, don't be one of them.

Lovingly,

The Writing Nag
