Consistency creates success
At the 2012 Frontiers in Writing conference in Amarillo Texas, I had the opportunity to speak to the “First Timers” class. Several years ago this type of class proved to be very helpful in preparing me for my first writing conference. Important writing information is shared such as what to expect when attending a writers conference, appropriate attire, behavior toward guest speakers and agents, how to choose which classes to sit through, and how an individual can maximize their learning experience for a profitable return on their investment paid at registration.
During the open forum portion of the class, a student asked the question, “Does an author become successful because they write a minimum number of pages or words a day?”
The truth is, each writer is different. Some write minimum word counts; others write volumes of pages quickly or stretch those words out over hours.
When you look at successful writers the one thing that is common among them all is consistency.
Whether it’s one word or ten, slow or fast, they write every day.
