Quote of the day

"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


  1. 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.


  2. Well said Marissa.Have a great day.

  3. So true. We must all be persistent or we won't get published.

  4. Great quote. We need to reread it at the beginning of each day; then go to work rewriting.

  5. 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!
