No one deserves success.
I'm not saying that because I'm upset, or received a rejection, or been pipped at the post by some other writer. (I love it when others gain success - I used to watch Blind Date, not for the angry break-ups or hate-filled diatribes, but for those precious and rare times when people liked each other.)
"I deserve it" is for those X-Idol-Got-No-Talent no-hopers.
The harder you work the luckier you get.
So why are you wasting time reading this?
