Since many people are pushing themselves to focus on writing this November, I thought this quote from Peter Salomon, author of the YA novel Henry Franks (Flux, September, 2012) was quite appropriate:
"Words of wisdom? Write. As simple as that. The moment you stop writing, you've given up, admitted defeat. Just keep writing."
Peter Salomon, in Interview: Peter Salomon, MSFV Success Star AND Super Guy at Miss Snark's First Victim, August 30, 2012.
