At first, the hardest part is just sitting down to write.
But that isn't as hard as letting someone else read your work
Which is easy compared to deciding it's time to send out your manuscript
Which turns out be a piece of cake compared to sending it back out after you've gotten one rejection
Which is nothing compared to trying again after the 10th rejection or the 50th
Standing on the edge of that formidable chasm with no good choices - giving up or going on?
Do you dare to publish yourself or endure a dozen more small deaths of the spirit until someone else acknowledges your merit?
It isn't easy that first time you say I'm good enough,
My work is good enough even if I'm the only one who knows it right now.
Until you take the leap
and the sail catches you and the wind carries you
and your realize you're in good hands after all -
