What Writers are Encouraged to Forget

"And it does no harm to repeat, as often as you can, 'Without me the literary industry would not exist; the publishers, the agents, the sub-agents, the sub-sub-agents, the accountants, the libel lawyers, the department of literature, the professors, the theses, the book of criticism, the reviewers, the book pages--all this vast and proliferating edifice is because of this small, patronized, put down, and underpaid person.'" - Doris Lessing

Larry Brown - An Interview

I found myself Googling Larry Brown today and ran across this interview.  I especially liked his advice for aspiring writers.

Just a Note

Just a note to say that there hasn't been much in the way of markets this past week.  Seems like everything I find is either non-paying or require fees to submit.  Very depressing.  Makes me wonder why I even bother to write.  The joy of writing seems to disappear a little bit more with every market search and the upcoming Holidays don't seem to help matters any.

Anyhoo, Happy Thanksgiving to all of you - May it be filled with family and friends.
