Here’s the secret of how to get published: keep going. ( now there is a novel thought!!)
“There is an enormous weed out factor for wannabe writers. The good news is that you aren’t competing with every published schmoe out there. You’re only up against the rest of the wannabes, and it’s like the old axiom about being chased by a grizzly bear. You don’t have to run faster than the bear to get away. You just have to run faster than the guy next to you.
Keep trying when the guy next to you quits in disgust. Keep writing when the girl next to you sobs and throws her manuscripts into the fire. Keep conducting yourself like a professional, and you’ll get someone to believe that you are one.
If you’re lucky, maybe even yourself. “~ Jim Butcher, writer

 

Some great words of wisdom there.. thought I’d share!
