Tenacity (noun) – the quality of being extremely determined
Have you ever been to a Little League baseball game? Those guys and gals are tenacious. Winning or losing they keep scrambling after that ball and swinging that bat. Play after play, they hang in there and give it their all.
I need to return to that child-like mindset and grab hold of some of that tenacity for myself. I tend to give up to easily when I reach a “foul ball” in my writing. How many tools do you have to overcome those stumbling blocks in your stories?
Time to plant my feet, raise my elbow, keep an eye on the ball and swing for the outfield.
Who wants to grab a bat and swing away with me? Let’s be tenacious!
