Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.

~ Ralph Waldo Emerson ~

Are you enthusiastic about the book you are writing?

Enthusiasm begins with motivation and a love for the craft. What do you do to stay motivated and pick yourself up during those times of discouragement?

It could be months or years before you get an offer for a book contract. What will you do to stay the course and not give up?

Hi Rita -

Excellent question. I also write non-fiction. The small successes in that area keep me pumped for the long-haul projects.

Also, the feedback I've received from contests and various people encourage me to press on.

Susan :)
