For the length of time it takes to write a book, you need to believe that you’re the only writer in existence; the only one who matters. You need to shut yourself away and allow the creativity to build up, not leak out through worry and comparisons and doubt.

Stories From The Trenches: Real Writers Sound Off About Making Submissions
A few weeks ago we asked our readers to submit their true stories about making submissions, and we were thrilled that forty-six writers took time out of their busy schedules to share their tales of hardship and success with us! You can find all of the original stories right here.
Though it was difficult to choose favorites, we hope you’ll enjoying reading the stories that struck a chord with all of us here at Writer’s Relief. If you’ve ever felt lonely and forlorn when sending your writing out into the unknown, then these stories will make you laugh, scratch your head, commiserate, and maybe—just maybe—help you feel better knowing you’re not alone.

When the door to my writing chamber gasps shut and the almost imperceptible sigh of a rose petal falls on my desk, I know that my muse is present.

Hey! Banned Books Week is coming up starting this Sunday! This year has a focus on banned comics & graphic novels.
If you are looking for some resources to spread the word or to run events, you should head over to the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund website where they have lots of stuff including two free downloadable posters you can print up to help promote BBW. I did the design above.
Oh yeah, and something else you could do for BBW is read Americus, by MK Reed and myself, which is all about book banning, censorship, and coming of age. 

Come fight the good fight with us at the JC store on Tuesday.
