Margaret Lucke

  • Some writers swear by outlines. Some writers swear at them.

  • What successful authors have in common, besides talent, is tenacity. Both qualities are good to have, but if you must pick only one, choose the latter. A writer without talent who persists is far more likely to succeed than a talented writer who gives up.

  • Be patient and persevere. I continually hear from editors that if you believe in yourself, take your writing seriously, and keep at it, the payoff is sure to come.
