Artistic careers can be mercurial so it takes a mix of faith and fortitude to stay the course with a writing career. There’s never a promise that the accolades will match the effort, or that the output will match the vision. Add in the external messages of what success should look like, exhaustion from day jobs and life responsibilities, and the enormous learning curve required to get from beginner to mastery, there are many opportunities to quit creating before you’ve gotten to the good part. On Staying the Course provides powerful perspectives on the obstacles that knock us off course, and discusses the mental tools needed to push through, maintain momentum, and move through the stages of artistic evolution.
