What should a lady do, who recently lost her mother? This is not her only loss, but start of a series of losses. On top of that, she lost her job, got divorced and had to shift city. So she is without job, divorced with a dependent child, which ultimately resulted in depression.
What will you do, if you were in such a situation? Well none of us can answer this in a moment. But what she did is very motivating.
She hoped that her dreams would come true. With that hope she continued to write the novel. She had thought about that idea few years back, during her happy days and completed three chapters. With hope at back of her mind, she completed the first part of the novel.
But that was not end of her struggle. It’s easy to write but almost impossible to get published for a budding writer. After rejections from uncountable publishers, a small publishing house finally agreed to publish that novel for a paltry signing amount of 1500 pound. Initially only 1000 copies were published. Out of which, 500 copies were distributed in libraries. Today such copies are valued around 25,000 pounds.
Very soon the novel turned out to be bestseller. Today the writer is one of the richest person in the world. We all are very fond of the movies made based on her novels. She is non-other than Ms. J. K. Rowling, the author of Harry Porter series.
Her story teaches us to never lose hope. It’s never too late to start, you just have to start!
