“Why do I write? Because I wanna be a great shark too. Another shark. A different shark, in a different part of the ocean. The ocean is vast.” –Joy Williams from her essay, “Uncanny The Singing that Comes from Certain Husks.”

From The Apex Magazine Listing on Duotrope:  “…Keep in mind that the search for awesome stories is as difficult as writing them. If you are rejected, don’t get angry—instead, become more awesome. Write something better, and better, until we have to accept you, because we have been laid low by your tale. It really is that simple.” — former editor Catherynne M. Valente

Also, some advice from Neil Gaiman that I just love. (“The only way to do it is to do it.”)
