Talent is helpful in writing, but guts are absolutely necessary.
If you've starting submitting this month you may feel fear that you're not ready, your work is not good enough; there are so many better writers out there.

What did they do different? Didn't give up, didn't listen to those negative voices in their head, kept writing in spite of people telling them they didn't have what it took to be a writer. This morning in one of my newsletters I was reminded of this. Jack London received 600 rejections before he sold his first story.Six hundred!That is believing in yourself and your work.
Now get back to work!
