There are days when you’re going to feel like you’re putting out Herculean effort for little results. There are days when you worry about whether you’re writing well enough, or if you’re doing enough marketing, or online socializing with peers, or how you’re going to sell your next story.
But what you have to do is just push through.
Not every day is going to be smooth. Not every day is going to be inspired. Not every day is going to be successful.
But if you’re always moving forward, and you’re always putting out your best effort, the smooth days and the inspired days and the successful days will come around again.
