"Optimists enrich the present, enhance the future, challenge the improbable and attain the impossible."
We applaud you. Yes, you. All the optimist out there are the foundation of much of our world. Without positive energy and attitudes it's hard to get anything done. Think of all who tried and kept trying. They have succeeded in life, not just writing, due to their optimistic view. It may be hard for some to see the bright side but I encourage you to try. The publishing industry is so tough the only way you can get through is tough skin, optimistic attitude, a lick and a promise. Don't get brought down by the nah-sayers! Show them you can push on and pull through & reach them stars. :)
