"Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy." --Norman Vincent Peale,
Great quote. I think you've got to have faith in yourself and faith that you'll find an agent and get published at the right time for you if you keep writing and querying.
Buffy, whew, needed that today. I'm submitting to an agent today who asked to see my ms and I'm totally afraid to hit send! I'm going to think of this quote as I do it! Thanks so much :)Marissa
Yep. Exactly what I needed today:)
So true. I came across something similar yesterday, working through "Writing the Breakout Novel" Workbook. I had to choose a 'hero' and then explain what made that person a hero. I chose Joan of Arc and after a lot of thought, I realized what made her a hero to me was that she so completely believed in herself. Imagine all the people who told her she was full of it. But she had the strength to ignore them all and listen to her heart.
