I have quoted my favourite saying many times in my life. ‘Aim at the sun, and you may not reach it, but your arrow will fly far higher than if aimed at an object on a level with yourself’ speaks to me of staying true to what is in your heart – of staying true to yourself.
This is the saying I say to myself whenever I feel down about not yet achieving the publication of a second novel. The main thing is to keep writing. That’s my aiming at the sun. By staying true to writing, this very important part of my being, I have had the joy and real sense of accomplishment of watching my arrow fly high.
