There are no fairy godmothers

Here’s the thing: you can’t wait for someone else to push you to write. No magical fairy godmothers are coming to grant you a magic pen. No one agent is going to come across your work in a blog or on Twitter and push you to finish your novel. This is something you have to do for yourself because you love your story and believe in your dreams.

It’s hard, I get it. Believe me, I get it. I’ll probably do another post later about depression and how it affects writing, but for now I’ll just tell you to please, please keep writing. Your beautiful stories need to bloom in the real world.
