Another new situation..

One Wednesday a month we write about things that make us feel insecure. Some days we authors have quite a collection we can lament about. For me, it's the usual problem with new things. I have a new website, childrensbookswithlifelessons.com and I write about inspiring kids, but each post also contains information on how to write good children's stories. It's a new twist on blogging. True to form, I'm having a learning curve. On Saturday, I did 50 revisions before it looked respectable. Yikes. But the next day it took about 17 edits, so we're moving in the right direction. Yay! I feel totally dopey when something new comes along because the learning curve thing is a tradition. On the positive side, I know eventually, I'll prevail and it'll be one more obstacle that's been conquered. Whenever you come across a difficult task, remember that you will prevail if you persevere. The only time you fail is if you quit. Perseverance is always the key to success.

    1. You're so right about that, Julie. None of us can get anywhere without trying. But the good thing is when you are rewarded after your hard work, you feel like you've done something important.

  5. Perseverance is certainly the key to success. The only way we can fail, is by giving up. I needed to hear that today. Thanks, Deanie. :)

    1. I know you're going through a very difficult time, Candilynn. But, since you will prevail, you will reap the rewards for your work eventually. It makes the victory a little sweeter, too.

    1. That's true, Katherine. It's annoying not to get it right the first time, but at least we're going in the right direction. Hugs back to you ox
