If you have a dream, I hope you go after it.

If you have a dream, I hope you go after it. If your dream makes you feel happier, or more alive, or if it feels like what you need to be doing, then I hope you keep after it.

It can take a while to get success; it usually doesn’t happen overnight. It took me more than 10 years and hundreds of rejections from editors and agents to get SCARS published. I knew I was going to get rejections. I’d researched it, and I expected it.

For the first 8 years or so I was doing okay, but then 9 years into it and 10 years into it I felt so much depression and so much despair. I wanted to give up–but I couldn’t.

If I had given up then SCARS wouldn’t have been published, and it wouldn’t have reached people and brought healing. So if you have a dream, if there’s something you feel like you need to do, then I hope you don’t give up on it. I hope you don’t give up on you. Keep after your dream.

Love to you, Cheryl Rainfield, author of SCARS, STAINED, and HUNTED.

About Cheryl Rainfield

I write the books I needed and couldn't find as a teen. I write teen fiction--paranormal fantasy and gritty realistic fiction. I'm the author of SCARS (WestSide Books, 2010) #1 ALA QuickPicks, and Governor General Literary Award Finalist, HUNTED (WestSide Books, Oct 2011), STAINED (Harcourt, 2013), The Last Dragon (HIP Books, Sept 2009), and Walking Both Sides (HIP Books, 2011). I also enjoy drawing, surfing the web, connecting with people I like, doing crafts, and being with my dog.
