“Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb”

Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
– Calvin Coolidge

Another quote that bolsters the idea that you just need to keep moving forward to be successful. If you’re serious about writing, don’t let anyone or anything stand in your way. Today, write about the last time you gave up. It may or may not be writing related.Try to use these phrases in your writing “I can’t do it” or “I should do this”. Set the timer for 30 minutes and just write.Now get back to work! Commercial interruption…I started another blog Everything About Writing for book recommendations ,writing links and overflow from The Writing Nag. It’s brand new but will be good information in time.
