There is no failure except in no longer trying.
― Kin Hubbard
I have not met my expectations as a writer. However, every rejection letter, every missed opportunity, and every zeroed out royalty statements adds fuel to my fire. I sit and strategize, wondering what will take me to the next level. I have been writing since I was able to read. I have been published as a book author for over ten years now; I can count the number my four books have sold on one hand. According to the media industry, I am not a successful author. Don’t get me wrong. I do strive to one day be on the New York Times best seller list, but every day that I put my finger to the keyboard and hit send or post, I am a success, because I continue to try. That does not proves that I am not a failure, it makes me a success.
