Here are this week’s new articles from The Adventurous Writer, covering travel writing, anger management, letting go of someone you love, and more! Last week’s new articles included How to Deal With Adult Dyslexia at Work.
First, some wise words on writing talent:
“I see the notion of talent as quite irrelevant. I see instead perseverance, application, industry, assiduity, will, will, will, desire, desire, desire.” – Gordon Lish.
I don’t know what “assiduity” means, but I get the rest of it. To be a successful writer, you need to work your tushie off!
Okay, here’s a roundup of my new articles on my Quips and Tips blogs…
