Occasionally I come across a post by another writer that is so good I just have to share. “The Downside of Persistence” by Richard Parks is such a post.
I know Richard from the time I lived in Mississippi. He is a superb writer and he thinks deeply about the process of writing and its outcomes, something I think about myself. Yet, I am unable to quantify my ideas as succinctly as he can. Again, which doesn’t surprise me because I know him personally and know what a great writer he is. Anyway, he really hit a home run with this post, imo.
If you are a beginning or an established writer I think you should read Richard’s post. I found it very helpful and enlightening…and I don’t say that about most things I read.

Richard Parks, that name rings a distant bell with me from all the years I lived in Mississippi! Checking out this post. Thanks!
Yep! He lives near Jackson and has been extensively published in magazines like Realms of Fantasy and Asimov’s and many others. 🙂
