If you’ve written a story, publish it. Once it’s published, market it. Once you start marketing, never stop! Stick to it like crazy glue. Attach your dream to that item and hold fast. Bond with it. Make it part of your heart, your soul… you are joined together like Siamese twins. Talk about it. Dream about it. Write about it. Sing about it.
Yes, I am taking this analogy a little far but think about it:
“Consider the postage stamp: its usefulness consists of the ability to stick to one thing till it gets there.”
If the stamp falls off, the letter won’t get there. It may be returned to sender. It may be trashed. It may be lost forever. Of course stamps don’t fall off nearly as much since the creation of self adhesive versus that licking them thing – but the words still ring true.
