And there's no "check Facebook 1 million times" in perseverance, right? :-)

Great perseverance quote. Here are some more I saw on Goodreads:

"Giving up is the only sure way to fail." ~ Gena Showalter

"You know what I did after I wrote my first novel? I shut up and wrote 23 more." ~ Michael Connelly

"If you can quit, then quit. If you can't quit, you're a writer." ~ R.A. Salvatore

Ahh, I love the one by Michael Connelly. It's sure hard to do. Pulling my hair out right now over a gigantic epic fantasy MS. *grinds teeth* Why do I tackle such difficult and complex story-lines so early in my writer experiences? (rhetorical)
