David Liss, The Whiskey Rebels, P.309
This makes me think of my novel. I’m dreaming to get it (or some other writing) published against all odds and I think, “Why not me?” I’m just like anybody else with a good story to tell so why not me? Against all the rejections, the no’s, I should come out on top. This is what keeps me going, keeps me writing, keeps me believing in myself and what I’m doing. Hopes and dreams—if you don’t have those, you might as well give up.
