Here’s the thing about effort: It doesn’t count.
No one buys a book because it was hard to write. No one goes to the movie because it was difficult to shoot.
What counts is whether it connects or not.
The reason you are an artist is because you’ll move heaven and earth to connect. Sometimes it’s really hard.
Your genius—your gift—is perseverance.
Eric Edstrom is the author of the YA science fiction series The Undermountain Saga and The Scion Chronicles
