Guest Post - Persistence Pays Off

About a week ago, the Woven Strands blog contacted me to do a guest post on their site. It honored me that they asked me to do this. So, I wholeheartedly agreed to write a post.

I wrote an article entitled "Persistence Pays Off". It details how a start-up writer needs persistence in their writing to improve and see good results. To read the entire article click on the link below.

Woven Strands - Persistence Pays Off


  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your piece on "Woven Strands," and as a result have subscribed to your rss feed. After blogging for 8 months, I'm in total agreement with you that persistence pays off. While I was a fine writer before, by my amateur standards, 418 posts later, I feel my writing has improved tremendously, again by my amateur standards. Unlike you, a professional, I've not sold anything. But I appreciate your saying that being published in the mainstream is not the "be all and end all." Although I wouldn't mind. A magazine article would more than satisfy my desire to be seen in print. But I digress.

    I look forward to reading more of your blog, and would love it if you visited mine, "hugmamma's mind, body and soul." It's more of an inspirational viewpoint, and I would love to "interview" you for it. You might inspire some of my readers to think of themselves as writers, and not give up on themselves.

    hugs for sharing words that inspire me to keep writing...hugmamma.

  2. Thanks for the kind words. I'll take a look at your site. Also, if you like to do an interview, I would enjoy that. You can contact me via the "About" button on the site.

  3. You're welcome. I read your "about" page and left a comment. And thanks, in advance, for visiting my site when you're able.

It's best to get in on this deal early because the price will slowly go up over the days leading up until it is full price again.

A collection of five science fiction short stories that reach beyond the mind.

Includes the following stories:

Josie Dorri And The Coffee Ban: What if the government banned coffee? See what happens to Josie Dorri when they do.

The Present: Miles Gray has a good life, but doesn't realize it. Often, a trip through time is all that is needed to open up a person's eyes to how good they have it.

How to Make a Face Mask

The United States' president and some governors are now recommending people wear a face mask to help prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus. They're also asking that the N95 masks be reserved for healthcare workers as they help those who are suffering from the virus.

In light of this, you might be wondering if you can make one yourself?

In the video below, my wife demonstrates how to make a reusable face mask for you and your family. Though this won't guarantee prevention of the spread of the virus, it is in line with what we're being asked. Every little bit can help!

Quaratined or Stuck at Home? Here are some free books.

The global crisis regarding the COVID-19 virus (or coronavirus) is affecting anyone and everyone. Whether you get the virus or not, in some way, our lives are being impacted. Schools are closed. Parties discouraged. Social distancing encouraged. Entire countries in lockdown. Toilet paper being bought up like it's gold. The list goes on and on.

Pretty stressful stuff for sure. Something out of a movie or book. Something none of us have ever experienced to the point that it might be surreal.

You probably find yourself stuck at home right now, looking for something to do. Netflix, Disney+, video games, books. Those are probably keeping everybody company.

I'd like to give you something to occupy your time while you wait this thing out. So, starting today until the end of the month (or possibly longer depending how all of this goes), you can read any of my books at no cost. This option is available through the Smashwords website using the coupon code listed below. (This coupon cod…
