DON’T. GIVE. UP.

I’d like to say that every writer will find an agent with their first (or even second or third!) finished manuscript… I can’t.

I'd like to say that the first agent you sign with is your one-and-only… I can’t.

I’d like to say that publishing is fair. That the amount of time and effort you put into it is proportionate to the success you will have… I can’t.

I’d like to say that even though you dearly love your friends, and wish them all the success in the world, that you’ll never just be the littlest bit sad that it’s not happening to you too… I can’t.

I can say, without continuing to try you will never succeed. And I also know it’s about the journey. I have learned so much this last year about writing, desire, determination.

I accepted an agent offer today. I am so excited I can’t stand it.

I’ve been in this place before. This time is different. This time I KNOW. This time I’m pushing through.

And I will not give up.
