Happy New Year!

4 Jan

It’s a new year and time to start tapping on those keys. Somewhere I’ve read that procrastination is either fear of failure or fear of success.  So if it’s fear of rejection slips that’s stopping you, just remember one of my favorite writing stories.

In  1977 a frustrated writer by the name of Chuck Ross decided to conduct an experiment. Choosing  author Jerzy Kosinski’s award winning novel  Steps, he typed up the manuscript and began submitting it to publishers.  All fourteen of them turned him down, among them Random House, the novel’s original publisher.

Feel better?
