Never Give Up! Never Surrender!

There are many ways to encourage someone to stay the course, or to celebrate their tenacity. One of my elementary school teachers called determination “good old American sticktoitiveness.”

The other day, a friend laid a new one on me. Another friend of hers was admiring her strong will by saying:

You keep hanging on like a hair in a biscuit.

If you’ve ever found a hair sticking out of a biscuit and have ever attempted to withdraw it, you’ll appreciate that simile.

I was born in Louisville, Kentucky, but now live in the woods in southern Indiana. Though I only write fiction, I love to read non-fiction. The more I learn about this world, the more fantastic I see it is.

    It is somewhat gross but if ever I’ll see a hair sticking on my biscuit it think I’m just gonna throw it.
