One of my pastors said something on Sunday that resonated with me. Speaking of the Christian life, and following Jesus, he said:
"The proof of desire is in the pursuit."
Writers love to write. Some of us are content to hide our stories away and write for our own pleasure. Some of us want to be published though. Our desire can be reflected in our pursuit of publication.
How can editor buy our book if he never reads it? How will an agent represent us if she never sees our query?
What are you doing to pursue publication? How do you get your work out there? Is your fear of failure greater than your desire to be published?
