Thursday Thought May

Today Susan Denney shares one of her favorite quotes:

"I believe the most important single thing, beyond discipline and creativity, is daring to dare."-- Maya Angelou

Susan says: "I received a card with this quote on it after my first novel was published. It made my day. And it is so true. Sending out a manuscript to a publisher or agent is the biggest dare of your life. Your "baby" represents many hours work and contains a part of your heart and soul. You love it and you want to give it to the world. But it takes a lot of courage to send it out to be rejected or ignored.  This quote helps me remember that no novel gets published if it sits in a drawer. And no story can make a difference if you don't tell it. "

Excellent advice, Susan! Thank you.
