If I could give you 1 thing

your humble host

It would be enough confidence.

Not too much to where you become cocky and arrogant

Not too little to where you are so humble you never speak up and tell anyone just how good a writer you are

But enough to keep you going.

Enough to sustain you after the latest setback or challenge – and there will be one.

Small to someone else might be mountainous to you.

Not because you are weak or sensitive, but because you haven’t traversed that mountain yet.

But you will.

Keep going.

      1. Thank you for your insight and support. Sometimes I look back on my earlier work and realize how little credit I’ve given myself lol. Im learning how to be my own cheerleader. It’s slow-cooking, but Im getting there. Thanks again!

        1. You are very welcome. One of my good author friends and I were recently talking about how good our early works were (we did not think so at the time), but that our more recent works are even better. But without one you don’t get the other!

  1. Thanks, Dan. I’ve been able to accomplish a lot over this break, but heading back to work tomorrow will really cut my writing time. But I know I can do it. On page 201 🙂
