It's common advice to 'keep your chin up' 'stay postive' and to 'Keep on trucking' and it's also the best advice you can be given, if you actually take it on board and don't dismiss it as shallow and naive.
Staying postive is pretty easy when you try but a domino effect of missteps, disappointments or failures can soon turn something easy into a real struggle. Unfortunately for me I'm not a lucky person and I've had a long string of disappointments for quite a while now.
Sometimes there are people in life who make the impossible seem close enough to touch and I have those people in my life. It's their support that helps push me through what is now a worn-down will to win.
And I'm starting to realise I don't care about the lack of any audience I have for Felicity. I never started it to sell books or gain a large following. I did it to tell stories and it's going to mean so much to me that I can't give up on finishing it. I feel like I can't progress as an artist, I can't improve or blossom until I finish it.
And I will.
