“Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be
times in this business when you will be the only one who does. Take
heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will
often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong,
distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous. But in the end,
only the strong survive.” – Jayne Ann Krentz
What else is there to say? The worst that can happen is that you try and fail…but if you never try, then you’ve chosen failure rather than possibility? That’s crazy! So, take a deep breath, separate your sense of self-worth from your work, and go for it!
