Hope Whispers

When the world says, “Give up,”
Hope whispers, “Try it one more time.”~Author Unknown

This quote hits home for me. I often hear hope whispering, even those times when I hear my practical side telling me otherwise. I’m one of those people who hang fast to hope by the tiniest thread. If it were not for those glimmers of hope in my life, I’m sure I would have stopped seeking publication many years ago. Hope is what urges me to pick myself up each time that I vow I’ll never write another word, never put myself through the pain of another rejection, never struggle to find the proper words. I sometimes think it would be much easier to simply walk away from the writer’s life but I can’t. At least not yet.

Where would we all be without hope in our lives? Today, I’m over at a Hopeful Sign. Please pop on over and say hello.

    The entire universe mourns when a writer loses hope. I’m glad you didn’t give up!


  2. Hope is certainly the writer’s best friend.


  3. The sound of hope whispering is ten times louder than any rejection. Never, ever, give up. 🙂
