One Word Journey



I had a different post planned for tonight (I should really be writing Book #3, but whatever), but then I read Shannon O'Donnell's post today on Life Melodies.

It got me thinking. (Not sure if that's a good thing).

If you had to pick ONE word to describe your writing journey, what would it be?

What's mine?

PERSEVERANCE.

What about you?

My writing journey would be called UNPREDICTABLE.

Great idea!

Jennifer Hillier said...

Great question! Mine would be: UNEXPECTED.

J. L. Jackson said...

Therapy!

VR Barkowski said...

Dream.

Nate Wilson said...

Ooh, that's an easy one. And I'll tell you what it is in a moment, but first I just want to say that your choice is an ideal one for writers to have. Perseverance is essential, since we face such daunting odds and long waiting periods, and need to sacrifice so much of ourselves.

Anyway, my one word? Procrastination.

Stephanie McGee said...

I agree that your word is the ideal one many writers should strive harder to achieve.

Mine?

Wobbly.

Tere Kirkland said...

Determination is the one thing that's kept me going, so I guess that's the word I choose.

Great post!

Shannon O'Donnell said...

Oh, wow. Thanks for the shout-out, Stephanie. I think I'm going to go with fortitude. :-)

L. T. Host said...

I think I'm going to have to be lame and go with the same one as you, because that's how I'm feeling right now. So, PERSEVERANCE for me too.

At least we can all hang in there together!

Bethany Mattingly said...

Incomplete, would be my word. I still feel like I've got a lot way to go until I'm satisfied with the progress I'm making. I feel like I have a lot more to offer than what I have thus far. Perseverance is a great word too :)

Amalia T. said...

Hmmm.

one word?

Homecoming.

Not because I have found any kind of success, but because it has felt so right that I am engaging in the pursuit.

Vince M. said...

Your word reminds me of a riddle someone tweeted recently:

What do you call a writer who doesn't give up?

Published.

;)

Dangerous With a Pen said...

Perseverence is the perfect word. Mine is probably more accurately "spotty" but I'm working on it!!!

Medeia Sharif said...

My word is also perseverance. I wrote one book after another after multiple rejections because I wouldn't give up.

Jade said...

I'm going to have to go with stubborn. A mule has nothing on me!!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Oh, this is a toughie. Just one? Hmmm. I'd have to go with perseverance too.

Renee Yancy said...

I would say FAITH. And patience. But that's two. BTW, love Nate's word, procrastination. That's me too.

Stephanie, I found the coolest pics of some recent discoveries concerning Tutankhamun. Watch for a post on them.

Susan R. Mills said...

Humbling.

roxy said...

Revelation. Have a great weekend!

Mark Noce said...

Adventure!

Jemi Fraser said...

LOVE that poster!!!

I'm not sure what mine would be - although I could use perservence too. Maybe nervewracking :)

Caroline Tung Richmond said...

My word would be: SUCKAGE.

Haha, just kidding. :)

Hmm, I think perseverance would be a good word for me too!

The Las Vegas Writer said...

Those posters make me laugh :) My word would be...


Erratic

Glad I found your blog!
