What does not kill us makes us stronger. Nietzsche.
How that relates to writing:
Whether it is putting your book on Amazon or formatting it for paperback or whatever, many times the FIRST time you go to do something, you want to pull your hair out. But each time you do it, the task gets easier – and one day you’ll look back and say, “Hey, now it’s no big deal!” and you may even be able to teach others.
The span of time in between those two events is much shorter than you would think. Probably less than a month.
But it will be a long damn month…
The point is,
at the beginning of the mountain all you see is up. From the top, you will stand – exhausted – and think:
“I can do that now.”
Even if you don’t believe that, you must tell yourself that.
