Motivational Monday ~ Talent Isn’t Enough

2 Jul

Talent isn’t enough. You need motivation–and persistence, too: what Steinbeck called a blend of faith and arrogance. When you’re young, plain old poverty can be enough, along with an insatiable hunger for recognition. You have to have that feeling of  “I’ll show them.” If you don’t have it, don’t become a writer. ~ Leon Uris

Happy Monday!
