~ My destiny is not dependant on the world, but rather it is dependant on me.

~ I have the number one quality of any great author…patience.

~ When publishing experts tell me what I did wrong, that is a good, because I will never make that mistake again.

~ No one can be tougher on me, than me.

~ I will not let anyone steal the joy I have of being an author.

~ I can build my publishing contacts by showing interest in others, rather than begging people to show interest in me.

~ Every word I write, every time I talk about my books, I will do it with boldness, sincerity, and enthusiasm.

~ I am not going to let one idea for a book travel with me to the grave. I will write every book that I can imagine.

~ I place value on every second of the day.

~ One conversation with someone in the publishing industry is equal to reading ten books on the subject.

~ Publishers are not giving me greatness. I am giving them greatness.

~ My success will not be measured by how many books I have written, but rather how many days I spent as an author.

~ The needs of my readers are more important than my needs.

~ Authors do not think of money while writing.

~ It’s not good enough to write the book. The book has to be good.

~ The more I brag about my perfect writing skills, the more people will find imperfections in my writing.

~ If I’m in a hurry, it means I am not patient. If I am not patient, I should not be an author.

~ It would be insulting to others who believe in me, if I give up.

~ There are millions of people who cannot do what I can.

~ What a shame it would be if the world did not see my book. I will not let that happen.

~ I would rather be correct, than fast.

~ I am not worried about someone else having a similar idea, because they cannot write like I can.

~ I will read everyday, even if it’s just for a minute.

~ I am not traditional…I am Untraditional.

~ I am going to have a career as an author. I can be sure of this, because it is the only thing I want to do.

Personal Note: You have the gift of becoming a great author. Your determination and passion is what brought you to this point. If I knew nothing else about you…that would be enough.
