Ron’s Tip of the Day Don’t Quit

Welcome to Ron’s Tip of the Day. Throughout the week I will share a tip with you. Today I am looking at Don’t Quit.

Don’t Quit!

On Friday I had 4 teeth extracted. They didn’t put me to sleep, because at my age and with my heart issues, they probably wouldn’t be able to bring me back. But the dentist did give me enough shots for my mouth that I was still feeling some numbness three days later (Sunday).

Several things happened since then. I was taking 3 Ibuprofen 3 times a day plus 1 Amoxicillin 3 times a time. On top of that and because of the medicine I slept a lot. Plus, my face looked like I got in a fight with my wife and lost. I hardly went out of the house and even had to stay home during church.

As for work, I hardly worked on my books at all and only worked on a few blogs (spread out over a few days) and put my vlog on YouTube.

But there was one thing I didn’t do; I didn’t quit. I didn’t give up on God. He’s the one Who made it possible for me to have the extractions and saw me through the ordeal.

Nor did I give up on my wife. She’s been there for me and made me proud when she went to church on her own instead of babying me. More important, I know she prays for me.

In addition, I didn’t give up on my writing career. Yes. Because my body was extremely tired, I wasn’t able to spend much time on my books. In fact, none over the weekend. But I didn’t quit.

Sometimes we just got to determine to press on. At first not as much as before but I kept on keeping on.

Tip of the Day: Don’t let health, sales, discouragement, or anything make you quit.

My wife (Tess) and I are authors and co-founders of T&R Independent Books. Founded in 2014 TR publishes our books and promotes writing. While we write in two different genres (Tess in Teen and mystery, myself in historical fiction) both writings are from a Christian perspective. I am first a Christian and secondly an author. I love writing about Old Testament saints. Whenever I write I always try to place myself within the primary character's shoes. In long novels that means I may focus on different characters at differing times. The result hoped for is that I bring the character to life. Apparently, according to reviewers, I have achieved this. I also write in Speculative fiction (future history, if you will), plus we've not started TR Writing Services to assist new and struggling authors to write and publish using the Kindle Direct Publishing (KDP) platform. And we keep our prices low.
