2. The work never stops, even if you start enjoying it.

5. You can’t change what’s already happened.

6. But you CAN rewrite what’s already been written. Like, that terrible first draft? You can redo that.

7. Other people’s opinions really don’t matter that much.

8. You don’t have to do things a certain way to succeed in writing. Forge your own path … maybe with some guideposts here and there.

9. Success takes time. And it always happens in small pieces.
