“Artists are people who are not at all interested in the facts—only in the truth. You get the facts from outside. The truth you get from inside.” --Ursula K. LeGuin

Writer's Wisdom

“The more you celebrate life, the more you have to celebrate.”

A few comments from Literary Agent
 #Michael Larson.
These came from his workshop I attended in Central Point, Oregon:
  • “First Drafts Always Suck.”
  • “Content is King, but DISCOVERY is the key to the kingdom.”
  • “Expect conflicting advice.”
  •  “Don’t start with a weather report.”

 The six rules of writing supersede that rule. They are :

“Read, read, read, 

write, write, write.”

  •  “Compare your book with successful books or movies.”
  • Test Market: “Start to market your book three years before it comes out.”
Three years? Holy Cow!
