Motivation Extends My Soul


Motivation Extends My Soul

So many authors struggle to get the word out about there books, especially African American authors and writers. Many are passionate, but some give up too soon and if only they had persevered, they could have seen there dreams come true. And those who have been in the game long, can lose the motivation or will and may need to be reminded.


Motivation, persistence and passion are three qualities I believe that serious authors and writers need to have if they want to pursue there literary dreams. I would like to present a column that helps and provides encouragement to authors, so that they recognize they truly have what it takes to pursue there writing goals and dreams.


Outline of show:

The Motivation Extends Your Soul column will present motivational quotes/statements bi-weekly about pursuing your goals and dreams as a writer. Bi-weekly articles will be presented to this blog.  The articles will be focused on motivation and self-help as an author or writer. I’d also like to showcase other writer’s talents.  In this column, I will sometimes pose a question, answer it and ask for feedback or opinions from authors and readers.  The question could be a little controversial or have something to do with the struggles of writers or even news within the literary world. I’m open to ideas, so readers/authors post your comments.

  5. In response to the question, “What keeps an author/writer motivated to keep writing, even if they don’t want to?”

    I think writers have an energy flowing inside them that has to be released! Yes, sometimes it’s a simmer and other times it is a full boil! The writer has to often time see their work appreciated by others to full blossom. So, I think as readers we should give them our full support by reviewing and reporting our likes and dislikes of the work we see. I want to see all of my writer friends boiling over and shariing, sharing, sharing.
