"Overnight success is almost always a myth. Half of this industry is luck and half is the refusal to quit." Victoria Schwab.
I can personally relate to this sentiment. I am just at the beginning of what I hope to be a long career as an author. It is hard work, almost like working a second job, with little return both mentally and financially. Still, when I read the reviews of the people who had read my work, it all seems worth it. So, if you have read my work, or any authors work really, make sure to leave a review. Let them know how our work has touched you and remember, never give up your dreams. Life has a way of stifling out the things we cherish at the whims of reality. the best advice I can give you is this. Dream on, Dreamers! #lodw
