Aspiring author and random thinker

Note to Writers

I just want to tell anyone who fancies writing as a hobby and hopes to make something out of it to remain diligent in their pursuit. Rejection letters, bad reviews, writers block and all other caused of frustration are simply unavoidable, at least in your early stages of mastering this craft.

Remember that every great person who ever excelled at a craft had to learn and spend a great deal of effort improving it. If you wrote your first book and fail to publish it or at least get some positive feedback, then don’t blame you undeveloped skill and rather focus on your unrealistic optimism – as opposed to realistic optimism, which makes no sense – for raising your hopes to imaginative levels.

You will write a lot of bullshit before reaping the rewards of your work. Remember the 1,000,000 word mark I talked about in one of my previous posts? Set that as a goal instead of publishing with a traditional publisher. In the meantime, take advantage of the other means available to you.
