A long road

I got to speak with a friend today whose husband is trying to sell a novel.  He’s had so many encouraging situations – getting an agent, getting his novel through to the marketing department of a publisher before it was cut loose, etc. but after a few years, he’s back to looking for a new agent.  This road we choose when we write and try to sell it, can be a daunting one.  What keeps us going?  Is it belief that what we’ve written is really so wonderful?  Considering a writer’s insecurites, I doubt that.  Is it the need to share our stories?  Possibly.  I want to write for a living, but I have to acknowledge that this could be a very long process.  It has taken me a long time to find a wonderful man to share my life with and getting to share my writing with readers may take an equally long time.
