Sometimes it can be very difficult to see light at the end of the tunnel. Writing a book takes a toll on each writer to some degree, physically, emotionally, spiritually. But, to be a writer takes that effort, to never give up. We are driven by our passion, our need to write -- it is as natural to us as breathing.
So, today, a little advice and wisdom. Save every scrap of paper on a work -- what you might delete in editing may be useful in another book. Keep all correspondence between you and prospective agents and publishers. Someone who rejects you today, could be your saviour tomorrow. And, don't ever lose sight of why you do what you do.
I love writing: creating new worlds, sharing a part of myself with each reader. Writing is life, writing is love, writing is not just what I do, but it is who I am. I will always be a writer, always striving to create something new, something different, something to be proud of. Stay focused and never give up on your dream.
