Stop thinking that I can’t possibly be the exception when it comes to being a successful writer. Don’t think about how hard it is… Think about how great it will feel once you’re there. Don’t think just because it’s a hard industry right now that you’ll never be able to do it. Don’t think about failing and how you’ll never make it. Make it happen and prove people wrong. It’s a hard difficult job with a high failure rate, but someone’s gotta be the one to succeed.
