This week I’ve been vacillating back and forth between, “oh, when will my time come?” to, “I’m in it to win it and I’m never gonna give up!”
I can pretty safely say most writers have ridden this roller coaster.
Sure, we’ve all heard the Stephenie Meyer success story–she queried for like 6 months before landing her multi-million dollar deal.
Makes you wonder, what gives???
The reality of it is that the average writer waits 10 years before landing a deal. (Please come at me with a different number if I’m wrong, ‘kay?) A DECADE? How can that be???
Though this can sound discouraging, I want to point out that for those of you who’ve been in it for 1 day to 9 years, 11 months, and 29 days:
NEVER GIVE UP.
You never know when your time will come. But you won’t ever know if you quit.
