Are you all familiar with "thewrittenword"? TheWrittenWordEZine is a daily source of inspiration for writers, editors and publishers. Jade Walker sends these nuggets of inspiration to writers and it's free to subscribe.

A recent quote applies to both published and yet-to-be-published writers. Persistence is the key, it really is, when it comes to writing. I am encouraged on a regular basis by these quotes and wanted to share this resource with you, along with how to subscribe to it if you want to.

Also, if you know of other good sources of encouragement for writers use the "comments" link to blog your suggestions! Thanks.

TheWritten Word 5/27/05 quote: "Success "Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties." --Bonnie Friedman
