I found this FANTASTIC quote from Miss Snark, the Literary Agent in her recent post:
Miss Snark steps up to the plate armour:
"Here's the thing. You have to write the thing that fills you with passion. You have to write something you love the way you love your children: all the time, even when you want to murder them. You have to write something you love so much it doesn't even cross your mind to ask 'am I wasting my time' because to NOT write it would be wasting your heart."
Words to live by indeed!
