How Do You Write? - Kristin Hannah
Marie Stone of Writers On Writing interviewed author Kristin Hannah about her novel The Great Alone. Toward the end of this episode she asked about writing advice, and here is some of what Kristin Hannah had to say:
You know, part of writing is failure. It's either failure in a draft, it's failure in a character, it's failure at getting an agent. It's failure at getting a publisher, it's failure at getting a good review. I mean you have to learn to be incredibly durable. And to not let the world's opinion, or anyone else's opinion stop you from doing what it is you need to do.
This specific portion of advice starts at the 51:00 mark, but the entire interview is great, so check it out.
And keep getting up and trying again.
