The main thing I want to accomplish with this blog post today is to inspire anyone out there who might be feeling down about their writing, who might be ready to quit, or who might be feeling the beat down of rejections or bad reviews.
This business is hard and sometimes you have to have super tough, rhinoceros-hide type skin. If you take anything away from this IWSG post, it's that you should never give up. If you love to write but aren't yet published—don't give up. If you're an author who has a publishing contract, but your readership is low—don't give up. If you're a writer who's struggling to make it to the bestsellers list—don't give up. And if you're wondering why I'm repeating the same words over and over, it's because I need to hear them more than anyone else. So, as you read through these quotes, commit yourself to move forward, work harder, and NEVER GIVE UP.
