Being caught up in writing the best of the best will only result in a deflated ego and no novel. You need to accept the fact that few people will write the fantastical story that becomes a worldwide blockbuster novel and in turn series.
Write, write and write some more of what you enjoy writing about while appreciating the process. If your sole aim is to write to become rich and famous, I’m here to tell you it ain’t going to happen. Most of our successes are derived from things we do because we enjoy them. We’re most prolific and generate the best output when we don’t have to force the creative juices to flow. It’s funny how life works that way.
Each of us has a specific God-given talent. Some of us are lucky enough to find out what it is early in life and hone it. Many of us go through our lifetime never finding out what it is. If you enjoy writing, do it. You may end up with a mediocre novel or it may be great. It doesn’t matter as long as you give it your best shot. As the great Wayne Gretzky said, “You miss 100 percent of the shots you never take.”
