I fail at writing each day. Literally, I don’t hit the goals I know I can hit. I struggle to not just pop Netflix on and fall into movies or TV series I’ve seen a hundred times before.
I fail daily.
But I endure daily as well. When I don’t write I feel guilt which then pushes me through. Some times it takes a couple of days to get over a slump but I always do.
Each day, no matter how hard the words are fighting me I will get the words out one way or another.
Keep. Fighting. For. That. Dream.
No matter how much you may feel like giving up, don’t. I’ve been writing since my early twenties. At the moment I do feel like a failure because I haven’t achieved more. But I’m learning the reasons why I haven’t gotten more done. I’m also at the point where I feel like I’m ready to take the next step.
If I was true to myself, no matter how much of a failure I can feel at times, I still haven’t quit. If I was going to, o would have done a long time ago.
And I remind myself, I’ve got stories being published in three anthologies this last quarter of the year. It’s been a year where writing has been severely on the back burner at times, and I still have three pieces being released the last part of this year.
Even if you’re just getting rejections, keep going. You will get acceptances as long as you learn your trade, grow and improve.
Never. Give. Up.
