Journalist by day; writer by night.
"History has demonstrated that the most notable winners usually encountered heartbreaking obstacles before they triumphed. They won because they refused to become discouraged by their defeats." --B. C. Forbes, 1880-1954, American Publisher
We all need this reminder from time to time! It's a tough journey for writers to become published. We tend to focus on the stories that are anomalies- J.K. Rowling, Stephenie Meyer... Instead, we need to have reality checks from time to time and remember that the worthwhile achievements are never easily attained.Marissa
Well said Marissa.Have a great day.
So true. We must all be persistent or we won't get published.
Great quote. We need to reread it at the beginning of each day; then go to work rewriting.
This reminds me of another personal favorite:"The sweet is never as sweet without the sour."I read about your new YA novel - sounds like a fun read! Good luck!
