Last week I did an interview over at Elana Johnson’s blog, and one of her questions was how often have I wanted to give up. I was pretty honest and admitted that there have been more than one or two times along y little writerly journey that I’ve really just wanted to say screw it and give up.
But something stopped me. I love this writing thing, and let’s be real–nothing awesome ever happened to people who just gave up when things got hard.
So, the thing here is this: No one said getting published was going to be easy. In fact, pretty much everyone told me it would be one of the hardest things I ever did. And, when it gets a big difficult, I have to remember that.
And so should you.
