Our theme this week is writing for the Web.
You don’t need to be an amazing writer to write for the Web. You can be average. I’ve never considered myself to be a great writer, or anything approaching that. However, I do have grit, and that’s taken me everywhere I want to go.
For years, it’s always shocked me when amazing writers, with amazing talents, went nowhere. When I have students like this, I get very frustrated, and do my best to help them to see that they already have everything they need, as long as they use it.
Our aim this week is to ensure that you make $500 a day as a Web writer.
Grit will help you with that.
Angela Lee Duckworth’s TED presentation, “The key to success? Grit” will help.
What’s grit? In the presentation, Angela explains that grit is passion and perseverance for longterm goals, and “sticking with your future.”
Please watch the presentation. We all have grit. We just need to be aware of it, and use it.
