- Write the book you want to read, not the book you think they want you to publish.
- Don’t edit yourself until it’s time to edit.
- If you stop writing after you are rejected, you never know what will happen.
- If you keep writing after you are rejected, you never know what will happen.
- Write with your whole heart.
