A Writer’s Guide to Persistence is a toolkit to support you through the unique challenges of the literary art so that you can create a sustainable, long-term writing practice without being swayed by the constant changes, negative criticism, and doubts that come with the territory.
This book aims to help you feel comforted, supported, and less alone, and also offers practical tricks to free you from unproductive habits. It aims to get you back on your feet after a variety of crises and common writer calamities so that you can do the important writing you are meant to do and nourish your writer’s spirit. If you are called to write, you must take it seriously, and this book can help you do just that.
