Alright tumblefluffs, listen up!
Nothing in the world can take the place of Persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent. The slogan ‘Press On’ has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race.

That right there is how you will get your dreams a done! I’ve met authors/creators/businessmen and more who’ve all admitted they weren’t the best writers, minds, whatever, when they were starting out. But…they stuck with it. They learned over the years. They’re still learning. They’re still not the best but that doesn’t matter. They don’t stop.
Those people are making livings doing what they love. And every year they are making progress. That’s what it’s about. Progress! Just keep going. Things will solve themselves as you do. Or, you’ll learn how to solve them. That’s life. It doesn’t get better. You do! You do!
I know some extremely talented authors who will not, do not, finish their works. Who do not go all the way to the end in publishing. It’s sad. But, no one reads the unfinished, unpublished manuscript. (Their stuff is not on wattpad either. I mean unpublished anywhere!) It’s the athelete who has talent but doesn’t train. Awesome. You can be naturally excellent but the person writing or whatever everyday, pushing themselves, will pass on and achieve something awesomesaucey.
That’s you. You all write, write the most and best you can while balancing different lives. You all walk different paths, but keep on walking. You will accomplish awesome stuff.
Heck, I’m only on book two! There are some nanos here on book umpteenth! Idk where I’ll be in five years or on my fifth, even tenth book.
But it will be cool to find out. Keep writing.
