From the January Fallbrook's Writers Read

You can’t learn to write from reading Moby Dick; you can just learn that you're not Herman Melville.                                                                                           – Author Jincy Willett

If you are rejected, the only thing that matters is that they rejected you. If they give you a reason, don’t listen to it.                                                                         – Author Jincy Willett

 

Writer’s lament

Before computers, it took me six months to be accepted by my first agent. Now, with email, I can get three rejections before lunch.                                                – Poet and Author Kate Harding
