Words on Failure

As a writer, I'm often faced with the concepts of success and failure. What makes a successful writer? Certainly not the money you make. There are too many good writers out there who are struggling, and starving. The very few who make money at it are the ones who are skewing the curve. Then, what of failure? What makes it a failure? Wordgems has famous quotes to help with that concept.

My favorite is from Elbert Hubbard: "There is no failure except in no longer trying. There is no defeat except from within, no really insurmountable barrier save our own inherent weakness of purpose."

I guess I'll keep writing.
