Famous writers who failed at first…

old book

I love this blog by Lori DeBoer. As an unpublished writer, I need to remember that it’s a journey to publication; not just three months at the computer and then, Blammo! -an agent calls you to ask what you are writing. the road to publishing, heck the journey to finish a book,  can be rocky but it’s always exciting. I write because I like words and I like how those words build into a visual picture – those pictures become a movie. I also like making up stuff, creating a world, building people,and eventually getting away with legalized lying.

But, more than that, I like that the great authors before me didn’t give up.
