When all is said and done, this is what writers live on. Hope. Of course there is work. Plenty of work. Without work, nothing is possible.
But when a writer has done everything in their power to move forward in the industry, hope defines the rest. It's the reason you don't give up.
Hope is hard to kill.
My husband told me last night that his biggest fear is that things will get so hard that I'll finally quit. And I'm not a quitter.
I was touched by his statement, but I've been thinking about why it's not my nature to quit- and I think it all comes down to hope. I have hope. In spite of everything, this keeps me going.
