Nugget #96 -- Tell It Again, Sam... er, Sean


I'll tell him about the rigors of bettering the craft 
and self-editing. I'll tell her about the constant 
need for building a better and more connected 
network of writers, artists, and publishers. I'll tell 
him about the traps that accompany neglecting 
submission guidelines. I'll tell her about the joy 
of seeing your first byline in, well, anything 
from a local newspaper to a book of short 
stories. And I'll tell every asker that I wish 
I could go back and recapture that 
moment of asking for myself.
