How to get encouraged
It's very difficult at times to remember that I write because I love it, not because it pays all my bills. Of course it would be wonderful if I could make a living doing what I love. And one day I plan to be able to do just that. In the meantime, it's hard. Sometimes I stare at a page and wonder why I bother. (Espeically when my books keep getting pirated and my royalty checks keep shrinking.) Then I get a note from a reader who likes my books and remember that someone out there is listening. So, I go back to my keyboard with my heart full of encouragement and start again.
