Failure

There is no failure – except in no longer trying.
Elbert Hubbard

I believe this is true. You haven’t failed until you stop trying. We all know that the publishing industry is hard to break into, yet some writers still think they will get published within a few months of finishing their manuscript. This rarely happens.

For those of us who want publication, the road is long and hard. We must ensure we know how the industry is changing. We must be open to suggestions and criticism. And, although there are plenty of writing communities to be found, we must learn to do this alone because it’s our own efforts that will get us through in the end.

Perseverance and patience are the two main ingredients needed. If you want to make it into the “published realm” you should never give up.
