Ray Bradbury on Writing Persistently

Hello Fellow Writers!

Yesterday I went to a write-in for NaNoWriMo, which was a lot of fun. I also got my word count up to 14,096 words.

I'm finding that writing so copiously everyday has been really helpful to me. It's keeping me from having the crippling writer's block that usually overtakes me about 50 pages into a book.

Ray Bradbury, the famous author who has written more than 500 short stories and novels, always wrote a lot and wrote often. He kept submitting his work even when it got rejected. In this video he says how he was writing so much and submitting so much that he barely even noticed the rejection letters. If a magazine rejected a story, it didn't matter because he was already working on another one.



Today I will be bringing my word count up to 16,000 for "Snowed in With a Millionaire". Wish me luck, and good luck to you too!

Yours Truly,
Shoshanna Evers
