People of mediocre ability sometimes achieve outstanding success because they don't know when to quit. Most men succeed because they are determined to.
- George E. Allen
Two rejections this week and then an acceptance. My five poems are now published online on the Irish American Post online edition, in their summer issue. Most of these poems were written years ago but I never submitted them.
The idea that you don't have to be the best writer or the most educated but just the most persistent has always appealed to me. It's just about trying everyday...and writing every day. If it's your dream, don't ever give up. Let the rejections be a badge of honor. Today, write about a time you almost gave up but then pushed through to success. Now get back to work!
