How will they ever get published?
I've recently stumbled on some amazing responses to these questions. I'm going to list a couple of these below and hopefully they will help you as much as they have helped me.
~ Stephen King said: the first million words are practice.
That sounds daunting, but it's really not. All you have to do is keep writing.
~ Dr. Seuss said: Everything stinks until it's finished.
~ Will Rogers said: Even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just sit there.
~ Tony McGee Causey did a wonderful post on quitting on her blog. I recommend everyone go read it.
and to end on a happy note, Groucho Marx.
“Don't sweat the petty things, and don't pet the sweaty things.”
“Outside of a dog a book is man's best friend. Inside a dog it's too dark to read.”
May we all resolve today not to quit until writing becomes something we don't love to do.
