Thanks for this and all your posts, Grant. Also, Domestika course. How cool is that? What a great video/ad. I love it! Can't wait to share this with our Write-minded listeners. And I just subscribed to Amy's substack.

Thank you. I especially needed to hear this today. I did NaNo for the first time this year. Sensational experience. AND, I've taken your Domestika course which I return to time and again for essential reminders.

Thank you for this! I'm close to finishing the latest draft of my memoir and all the doubts are surfacing again. I sometimes wonder if I think I'm not finished because I am afraid of the next step-querying and putting my story out in the world. Thank you for this reminder and I'm going to make that list!

Oh, this hits on a difficult day. On the one hand, I do agree you have to believe in your story, if you have to want it. I have several friends who finally decided to quit writing. They discovered other things they wanted more. And more power to them. Why go through this if you don't want it enough? But if we're talking getting that publishing deal and stellar career...timing and luck matter too.

I'm not in a positive mindset today though. But I'll get through it. I'm still here after all.
