Stick It Out Long Enough for Repeat Business to Find You

In 2004 I wrote a book with Venus and Serena Williams for publisher Andrea Pinkney at Houghton Mifflin. It's now 2009 and Andrea now works at Scholastic.  has called to invite me to work on another children's book. Had I bailed out on freelancing earlier this year when the going got tough, I wouldn't have been able to take advantage of this opportunity; instead, the book project would have gone to somebody else. Good things come to those who develop the intestinal fortitude to hang in there when the going gets tough.
