The craft of writing lends itself to peaks and valleys often between hope and doubt. Questions loom as to whether your works will be published or not. Acceptance is always on the verge or at a distance like a far-off horizon.
Alas, the creative artist's truest solace is that he must believe. Above all, he must believe in his work. He must believe that his work is worthy. he must not create for the sake of men but the acceptance of the Almighty who blesses and bestows with talent and gifts to be used and honed.
You must believe.
