FAILURE IS NOT AN OPTION
An intuitive friend posted an inspiring message to my Facebook timeline. Since I believe we're all connected, I think it's a message many can relate to.
“Life's real failure is when you do not realize how close you were to success when you gave up.”
Keep writing. Perfect your manuscript. Seek a professional edit. The novel you've given so much time, sweat, energy, and tears to may see its day in print. One yes is all you need. Keep plugging away. Study, practice, send a query. Work your hardest to create the best novel, short story, or article. Don't give up. Believe in yourself and your project. Your success may be right around the corner. Your dream may be fulfilled when you least expect it, but it will be at exactly the right time for you.
