noun:If I were talking about that second concept I would have thought of the old-fashioned sticktoitiveness - which probably isn't too old, actually.
1. The ability to sit through or tolerate something boring.
2. The ability to endure or persist in a task.
And Word A Day also mentions the other synonym, chair glue, which I had never heard before:
Sitzfleisch is a fancy term for what's commonly known as chair glue: the ability to sit still and get through the task at hand. It's often the difference between, for example, an aspiring writer and a writer. Sometimes the word is used in the sense of the ability to sit out a problem -- ignore it long enough in the hope it will go away.I love the latter meaning - it's great when procrastinating long enough means some problem has just solved itself.
But it's the first of the two definitions that is important to us bloggers. Keep on writing. Maybe someone will read it, lol.
