Perseverance

Stumbled over this post today and it’s both inspiring and terrifying. So inspiring to hear that after all that hard work, at last this author saw success. And terrifying to think how easy it’d be to give up, walk away.

I’ve got three stalled novels and have only just now finished my first. I can’t imagine having to “trunk” one, then rewrite a second from scratch. It seems so huge… and yet, it’s amazing to think that in the end all that perseverance paid off.

I admit that’s one of my fears. I have a hard time not being perfect… even though I’m far far from it. I do have a tendency to give up when I feel I’m just not good enough.

I admire this woman and hope I can learn from her experience, if and when I have to endure similar things or worse things!
