Encouragement for walking the long hard road to publication.
I read a great article by Richard White in a guest post he did for the good folks over at Novel Publishing Group. As I'm chopping away at my very first novel I find myself strangled by a gamut of emotions. Sometimes I'm really excited about living the dream of writing a book that is picked up and published. At other times I'm gripped by the shear terror of tons and tons of rejection letters that seem to inevitably haunt those who write.
I find myself these days enjoying the ignorant bliss of writing without fully knowing what to expect once I'm done and seeking a literary agent and ultimately a publisher. Articles like the one by Richard White really inspire me to never give up. Whatever your pursuit or dream keep swinging the ax. The forest will eventually clear before you.
