Writers know about persistence. At least, those who are published know the value of it. Yes, there are the superstars, who sell their first book for a seven figure advance, become overnight stars, and land on all the best seller lists.
The fact is, those are the exceptions. Most of us just plod our way, hoping that we put the right story in front of the right editor at some point in our careers.
Once such writer is Theodor Seuss Giesel. Dr. Seuss was not an overnight success. In fact, his first
book was rejected by 27 publishers. But he kept trying, and
ultimately sold dozens of books, which have delighted children of all ages, including those of us whose calendar years put us well beyond childhood.
Joy for today: discovering that we do, indeed, like Green Eggs and Ham!
