Picture Quote Monday {Say}

I've come across the same bit of advice several times from different sources over the last couple of weeks. In my own words, the advice is this: Don't write the book you think will sell. Write the book you want to write; the book that's longing to be written. Because my book isn't in the vein of current trends, I've struggled with the fear that it's too hard of a sell and that I'll never find an agent/publisher who will catch my vision and want to take it on. But at the end of the day, I have to remind myself that I wrote a book that came from my heart. I wrote the book I was supposed to write. It wasn't a waste of time and it wasn't a foolish decision. And I hope - and believe - that somewhere out there is an agent (and a publisher) who is going to fall in love with it.

So for those of you struggling with the idea of writing outside the box, or wondering where you fit in this writing world, be encouraged. Say what you have to say.
