Tenacity

I haven't read "The Help" or seen the movie yet. Don't know if I support or like the author or her book, but I do like her thoughts on following your creative dreams!

Here is a great article about tenacity (or is it stubbornness?) and never giving up on your dream. I particularly like the final paragraph:

"The point is, I can’t tell you how to succeed. But I can tell you how not to: Give in to the shame of being rejected and put your manuscript—or painting, song, voice, dance moves, [insert passion here]—in the coffin that is your bedside drawer and close it for good. I guarantee you that it won’t take you anywhere. Or you could do what this writer did: Give in to your obsession instead." --Kathryn Stockett (aucthor of "The Help")
