Quote: Writer L.J. Sellers
How it sometimes happens:
I started my first novel after tossing aside a piece of dreck and thinking, I could write a better novel than that. Then the compulsive part of my brain said, Oh yeah? Prove it. So I spent a couple of weeks brainstorming and outlining a novel, then sat down and cranked it out in about three months. It wasn’t publishable, but it was better than that piece of dreck that somehow made it into print.
Crap can be a motivating force.
