Make your accomplishments physical. Give them weight, substance.
Transform them into something of which at least gravity must act upon.
Authors toil at the computer for hours and hours and hours… and often finish with nothing but a tall tale on a flickering screen to show for their labors.
It can be disheartening, to say the least.
So, write something down. Put pen to paper, fill reams of paper with your mad scribbles.
End the work day with something you can hold and feel.
On a bad day, sometimes that makes all the difference.
