Write hard

You must write - not just talk about it, not just think about it, not just dream about it.

You must write consistently - not just when The Muse inspires you, not when your house is clean, not when everything in Life is running smoothly.

You must strive to improve - practice indeed makes perfect, or at least better.

You must put your work out there in the marketplace - nothing ventured, nothing gained.

You must persist when rejected - because you will be; everyone is.

You must believe in yourself - even when no one else does - especially when no one else does.

You must remember why you began writing in the first place - because you love putting words together.

You must accept that luck is a part of this business and that you may never get that lucky break, but that you can succeed anyway.

You must remember why you write - because it is what you do; it characterizes who you are; it is a reward in itself.
