"You might never fail on the scale I did, but some failure in life is inevitable. It is impossible to live without failing at something, unless you live so cautiously that you might as well not have lived at all – in which case, you fail by default." J.K. Rowling
A Writing Tool
For those who struggle with writing, I recommend The Writer's Process, by Ann Janzer. This book applies the latest in psychology to writing and gives concrete solutions to common writing issues like procrastination, imposter syndrome, mindset, writer's block, and finding creative flow.
What your characters learn from the plot is more interesting than the plot itself.
