Practice. Polish. Persist.

Your writing journey can take you many places: hiking through steep mountains, traversing unknown territory, hurdling both roadblocks and rejections. Even the siren song of fame and fortune can distract you from your true purpose: to express yourself in an authentic and meaningful way, and to share your words with others.

A Writer's Guide to Persistence is your road map through the rugged terrain of the writer's path. You'll discover advice and techniques for cultivating a fruitful, deeply meaningful writing life by practicing your craft, polishing your work, and persisting through even the toughest challenges.

Inside you'll find:

  • Practical ways to balance writing with the rest of your life: taming your busy schedule, increasing your productivity, and committing to a writing practice
  • Advice for developing authentic work: finding your voice, writing bravely, and breaking the blocks to creative flow
  • Methods for stretching your skills through craft and revision
  • Thoughts on pushing through rejection and doubt, submitting strong, nourishing yourself to avoid burnout, and keeping your mind and body fit
Filled with journaling exercises and much-needed motivation, as well as insights from best-selling writers in a variety of genres, A Writer's Guide to Persistence will help you find the joy and purpose inherent in a writer's life. Your journey to publication and success may take a lifetime, but you can sow the rewards of writing with every step.

"A compassionate and intelligent guide for any writer who's just starting out or one who needs the understanding and encouragement of a great writing coach. Rosenfeld offers practical solutions for every concern, from how to find the time to write to getting through writer's block." --Patricia V. Davis, best-selling author

About the Author:

Jordan E. Rosenfeld is the author of Make a Scene: Crafting a Powerful Story One Scene at a Time; Write Free: Attracting the Creative Life, with Rebecca Lawton; and the novel Forged in Grace. She is a former contributing editor to Writer's Digest magazine and has written for Publishers Weekly, The Writer magazine, and many other publications.

Review:

 
"Rosenfeld offers a gentle, loving nudge not only to novice writers but also to those of us who have been working at writing for most of our lives: You are the only one who can make you stop writing. This book will hold a cherished spot in my bookshelves and whenever I feel the need to be reminded of why I chose this writing life.-- Myfanwy Collins, author of The Book of Laney and Echolocation.

"A compassionate and intelligent guide for any writer who's starting out or one who needs the understanding and encouragement of a great writing coach. Rosenfeld offers practical solutions for every concern, from how to find the time to write to getting through writer's block." --Patricia V. Davis, best-selling author of The Diva Doctrine and Harlot's Sauce.

At a time when writers feel pushed to build platforms, target markets and sell huge numbers of books, Jordan Rosenfeld provides a reprieve. A Writer's Guide to Persistence is a must read for anyone who wants to develop the tenacity to write consistently and successfully. --Nina Amir, bestselling author of How to Blog a Book and The Author Training Manual 

"The power of another writer- the only one who really gets this 'spooky art' (as Norman Mailer called it) to inspire and connect with other writers is unparalleled. Jordan Rosenfeld's kind but firm voice is the writing teacher we all wish we had, and is backed by prodigious talent and output that gives her a seriously earned authority. --Maggie May Etheridge, Author of Atmospheric Disturbances.
