On being successful

Quite a while ago, probably when one of the Star Wars movies was coming out, I found this quote attributed to Harrison Ford:

I realized early on that success was tied to not giving up.

I taped the quote to my computer and read it almost daily. Years passed. A drawer in my file cabinet filled with manuscripts editors didn’t buy, but as I continued working, my success rate increased. The old adage says, “If you don’t succeed, try, try again.” I like Harrison Ford’s wording better. Success is tied to not giving up.

About Sharon Hart Addy

Writing is the monkey on my back. Sometimes it's great fun and sometimes it -- well, things can't be fun all the time, but it's still engrossing even when I chew my nails and scratch my head while searching for inspiration. Fiction is my particular fondness. Writing it and reading it.
