According to Merriam-Webster, to be patient means to bear pains or trials calmly or without complaint. We all know that trials come in the writing life, whether those trials be personal or professional. Patience helps us to endure those trials.
It has been said that the darkest moment in the waiting game is the moment just before success. Without patience, we will never see this moment of success. If you find yourself being impatient, remember James 1:4: “But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” Including writing success.
Have you struggled with having patience in your writing life? If so, how did you overcome that struggle?
