Our perspective of ourselves is infinitely important.
What do you do when you feel like nobody cares about your writing? I'm asking from an unpublished, inexperienced writer's perspective. You've changed and inspired many people's lives with your work, so I don't imagine this is your situation. But when you're starting out and nobody knows you, the though of reaching at least one reader and make a positive contribution in their lives is sometimes enough of a motivation through the long, lonely process of writing. So how do you find motivation?
