Dose of Reality? In Need of Encouragement?


I think that, as a writer, no matter how exciting it is to have finished a novel, I have those nagging doubts. Yesterday, as I looked at my book sales, I had one of those moments. I'm grateful that I could take a step back and, with the help of my wife, realize that at the end of the day, what is important is not the sales. What is important is the accomplishment! I wrote a freaking book! I'm a third of the way through another one! That's no minor accomplishment.

I want to encourage all of my fellow authors today. Take a moment and reflect. You are amazing! You've done something (or are in the process of) that so few people have. There may be a million books on Amazon, but when you press submit on that final draft, you are now one of the stars!
