  1. I like the quote. You perhaps know from following my blog that I am all about going for it and trying new things. It’s not like I’ve got all the answers, but I’m convinced that it’s much better to go through life with the attitude of not being afraid to fail. I’m going through this right now with my first novel that I’ve been working on for a year. If it was easy, everybody would be doing it.

      1. Alright, so do I have to give you one of my famous (or perhaps they’re infamous😎) Pete Springer pep talks that I used to give my students? I haven’t seen that much of your writing other than from your blog, but I know you have the talent and the ability to connect with people through your writing. There are so many stories of writers who submit their work 200 times only to have it rejected. Then on the 201st try, everything magically lines up, and they become published. Some become quite famous. (That’s not important to me.) It is a common tale, so keep believing in yourself. You can do it, and you will feel so proud of yourself if you do it. Who can put a price on that?

        When I was younger, I had the same affliction. Now I’ve arrived at the place where I still might fail, but it isn’t going to be from lack of trying. There is a lot of comfort in that thought. Go for it, Chel!
