* That I persevered
* That I still have it in me to write books
* That my creativity still lurks somewhere deep inside me.
* That a person--me, in this instance--does not have to be defeated by life's busyness, illness, problems, or whatever.
No matter the circumstances and hindrances a person can write. You find the time. You find the inspiration. You find the grit to do this.
Why? Because you're a writer. You don't give up when you reach a plateau. Or when you don't want to write that day. You get a word or two or more down.
Feelings are such a big part of a writer's life. You FEEL and that's what makes you a writer. You don't give up when critiques criticize when you get a bad review, when someone gives you a bad review or your feelings are hurt. You wallow for a bit, then square your shoulders, hold your head high, and begin writing.
We study, learn and do better. That's why when I write "The End" I'm happy. I did it! I wrote yet another book.
You can too! Don't give up.
