I read the following on a church bulletin board, Any bug can hit the windshield but it takes guts to stick there.

Being a writer, I immediately likened this to those of us who write. I wondered how many writers out there have become so discouraged that they stopped writing. Just because no one has published your work, doesn’t mean that you can stop trying.

It really does take guts to put your work out there for someone to tear apart. It’s not easy to have someone say that your work isn’t good enough, or that it’s not what they were expecting from you. Courage creates writers. Don’t give up, because someday someone will like your work, just stick to the windshield.
