I think that one of the hardest things about doing something creative is finding that internal motivation to push onward and believe you’ll succeed if you just push on a
little longer even in the face of mounting evidence to the contrary. But you can’t see what’s going to happen next.
You could give up when you’re so close to achieving your goal, you just don’t know.For me, I keep a list of all the nice things people have ever said about my writing. That’s what keeps me going.
I don’t mind not succeeding because someone didn’t “get” my writing but I don’t want to be the one that held me back.
