There is more bad writing than good.
More rejections than acceptance.
More criticisms than praise.
More who would advise against than for.
More doubt than assurance.
More dry spells than inspiration.
And it takes years.
Thousands of words and thousands of pages.
No certainties. No guarantee.
But you are a living, breathing fire, ablaze with imagination.
Light those pages. Watch so many burn until a chosen few are reborn from the ashes.
And that is the book. The one you'll master. The one you'll love.
Then write another. And shine on.
