I find if you work on two projects simultaneously, you trick your brain into working on one to avoid working on the other (the one you work on will, without fail, be the one with the less pressing deadline).(less)

But they are not unalterable. When you sit down to start writing your first chapter, the odds against that book ever being published are a million to one. But that number can be brought down. Everything you write, every query you send in, every connection you make, every workshop, every note, every rejection, it all chips away at that huge big number. Finish the book? Congratulations, you've gone from a million to one to 500,000 to one. Got an agent? Now you're 100 to 1. Got a better agent? 10 to 1.
Never gave up? Kept going no matter what? Refused to take no for an answer? 1 in 1.(less)

“Power is a poison.”
Neil Sharpson, When the Sparrow Falls

“Yes, it would look like she was smuggling an ostrich with a tarp on it into a motel room, but this also looked like the type of establishment to not particularly judge for that sort of thing.”
Lindsay Ellis, Axiom's End

“Power is a poison.”
Neil Sharpson, When the Sparrow Falls

“She tried not to think in capital letters. It was a bad habit. If you weren’t careful, pretty soon you’d find yourself Going to the Store to Buy a Carton of Milk—or worse, speaking German.”
