There’s something you need to remember, no matter how tough things get.
You are lucky.
Published or not.
Indie or trad.
Full-time or otherwise.
Pantser or plotter.
Whether you write for yourself or others.
Even if you just keep a journal.
You’re lucky because you have a story worth telling.
You have the education and the means by which to tell it.
Compared to the totality of human history, you’re a long way ahead of the curve.
