    Love this quote. So true.

    That could be a good thing, since we might avoid the adversity and hard work that comes before success and getting what we want. Would we have given up if we'd known how long it would take to get our books sold?

    Mary Marvella, still working on that first sale.

    Thanks, Beth. I got this quote from an email from a professor at Rice University. It didn't have the translation so I had to find a Latin dictionary! Hope you're feeling better.

    Mary, you made me think of that first writers conference in Hilton Head where we met and that "poet" said I had joie d'vrie. I think she meant I was too enthusiastic and didn't see the hard road ahead!
    Perserve.
