Gay Walley

Writing has no fast returns but stay with it. The returns will come in.

To create a book takes time. Then it takes time to try and find an agent. Then it takes time to find a publisher. There’s a lot of rejection along the way. Writing a play takes time. Then it takes time finding a producer. There’s a lot of rejection along the way. Sames goes for a film script. But writing is all about perseverance. Doing it. Staying with it. Revising it. Believing in it. Not listening to sniping friends. Not paying attention to how much money you are not making. And then… you get the call. The agent takes it. The producer wants to talk. And then it all falls into place. Someone has heard/read/got you. Writing, after all, is a communication. So, as you read this today, this is just a quiet affirmation to you: Keep doing it. Keep believing. Keep honing your craft. Your success is waiting for you. it takes staying with it.
