Sandra McGregor posted a link to this very inspiring blog post last week. Tonya Kappes with The Writer's Guide to E-Publishing wrote an amazing article on How Bad Do You Want Self-Publishing Success?
I was immediately inspired and motived to sit my butt in the chair and start writing. I've since started carrying my AlphaSmart with me everywhere, along with a pad and paper.
Regardless if you are trying to self-publish or go the traditional route, read the post and watch the video. Listen to the words. You won't regret it.
