"For writers, the only thing over which we ever have any control is our own mindset. If we stay focused on ourselves and on our work, opportunities may come, but they’ll arrive on their own time schedule. Worrying, crying, or overindulging in bad TV or good ice cream will not make those opportunities come any faster." - Aaron Hamburger
