I have been writing for fourteen years. More than eight of those, I didn’t earn a dime. I didn’t receive much praise. Few people knew I wrote; most of them told me it was best to give up.
What kept me going?
What was it that motivated me to keep writing, even when it seemed that I’d never be able to do this full time?
I’ll let you ponder over these questions, let you analyze why some people give up when the going gets tough while others keep on fighting.
