Diana Nyad is an American long-distance swimmer. In 2013, she became the first person confirmed to swim from Cuba to Florida without the aid of a shark cage.
This was her fifth attempt to do so.
Did you know that Diana is also an author? Her book, Find A Way, has hundreds of insights into the life of this remarkable woman. Well worth reading.
In a recent interview she was asked how she kept pursuing her goal in the face of four defeats. She replied that she had always had the attitude that, “Even if we never make it, it’s still a journey worth taking.”
That’s how I view the writing journey.
Even if I never
sell a lot of books,
hit the best-seller’s list,
become particularly well-known,
I consider that the writing journey is definitely worth taking.
What about you?
