You may or may not be happy with your book sales at this point in time, but the year isn't even half over. Cheryl Strayed's quote reminds me that effort isn't always instantly rewarded. Hard work pays off, just not usually right away. Keep working, and it will be worth it when the time comes.

    1. Thanks for clearing that up, Christina - that's exactly where this quote came from. I'm updating it now.

  2. But if you check out The Writer's Workout, you'll find lots of advice just like this quote. :)
