“The man who gets up is greater than the man who never fell.” —Concepcion Arenal
Often, you have to fail as a writer before you write that bestselling novel or ground-breaking memoir. If you’re failing as a writer—which it definitely feels like when you’re struggling to write regularly or can’t seem to earn a living as a freelance writer—maybe you need to take a long-term perspective.
—J. K. Rowling
