Blog to Read

on February 4, 2006

If you haven’t been over to Tess Gerritsen’s blog this week, check out this must read post for all writers, published or unpublished.

An excerpt:

If you want to be a writer, get ready for editors telling you your manuscript isn’t good enough, critics telling you that your book is lousy, readers whining that they wasted twenty five bucks on your opus, the bloggers saying they’re appalled you got nominated for that award. There’s no way to avoid it. You’ll get rocks thrown at you, and you might as well prepare for it now by hitting your head against the wall a hundred times, just so you get used to the feeling.

But if you’re a writer, you’ll keep writing anyway, even if you disappoint your readers or your editor or your agent. You won’t give up, because then you’ll disappoint the one person you can’t afford to disappoint.


Natalie, Karin, Deb, Jen and Allison are pleased to announce that Tess Gerritsen will be our guest blogger on February 14th!
