Writers on Writing


  1. I just started listening to your podcast, and I found something in this episode kind of astonishing. One of you is considering abandoning a project after (maybe) receiving one rejection (and a very positive rejection at that). Dude. Do you know how many rejections are normally required to achieve a first book sale? If you can’t paper your walls in rejection slips, you haven’t given that book a fair shot. They also help to grow the elephant hide. Thicken the skin and keep going.

  2. Abbie, I hear what you’re saying. And, you’re right. I should keep sending it out. It’s not like it could hurt, certainly. I’m still going to continue working on my new story, but there’s no reason I can’t keep shopping the old one around. Thanks for being another voice in the chorus telling me to keep at it.
