So what has the new year brought for you so far? Only three days in and I feel a renewed sense of purpose. In addition to writing, I own a handmade jewelery business and last year has been terrible for retail. I’ve been working on my accounting this week and things were worse than I’d realized. It was a real surprise given that ’10 and ’11 were very strong. But as I start 2013, I feel confident that America wants to fight the depression that drags at us. We want to find new ways to do business, self-publishing being one of those ways.
It’s a brave new world and for those of us willing to keep pushing, who knows what will happen. But the main thing is we can never give up, never give in to the temptation to walk away. Sure it’ll be hard, but then anything worth always is.
Here’s to a great 2013!
