Advice to aspiring writers: Anne McCaffrey


Advice to aspiring writers:
        "First -- keep reading. Writers are readers.
        Writers are also people who can't not write. 
        Second, follow Heinlein's rules for getting published: 
          1. Write it.
          2. Finish it. 
          3. Send it out. 
          4. Keep sending it out until someone sends you a check. 
      There are variations
      on that, but that's basically what works."

                                 ~ Anne McCaffrey, who
                                    passed away at 85 this week.
