The Saturday Writing Quote — the habit of persistence

Get going, I’ve been telling you this month, but just as important: Don’t stop!

“People who want to write either do it or they don’t… my most important talent – or habit – was persistence. Without it, I would have given up writing long before I finished my first novel. It’s amazing what we can do if we simply refuse to give up.”

— Octavia E. Butler, American science fiction writer (1947-2006)
