3. Be Tenacious

That’s right. A girl must know how to stick to her gun. If JK Rowling, Stephen King or Stephanie Meyer gave up after their first or second attempt at landing a book deal, why, we might never have read all the great bestsellers they’ve given us over the years.

This point deserves some emphasis.

Succeeding as a writer "ain’t" for sissies, whether you’re a man or a woman. If you can’t commit to it, no matter the odds, or if you’re looking to hit it big instantly, then back off.

Think I’m joking? Wait for when the rejection letters start piling in, or when after 6 months on Amazon your book hasn’t gotten a single download.
