"All you need is ignorance and confidence; then success is sure."
|Would you bike down this?|
When I set out to write my first novel, I knew nothing about the business of publishing. Ignorance was bliss. I had confidence that I would write a great story and then my book would be published. Simple.
My ignorance and confidence did not mean sure success in my case. So what exactly was Mr. Twain talking about?
What I understand now is that the more knowledge I gain about writing and publishing, the harder it is to maintain that blissful feeling of confidence.
What does Mr. Twain's quote mean to you?
