Donal Ryan, Paul Harding and the work of persistence
I thought this piece from the New York Times was interesting. Yes, it takes persistence and faith - optimism, blind faith maybe ... for a more prairie and personal take you can also have a look at Anne Lazurko's post on getting Dollybird published (just arrived and out in stores Aug 15, 2013). I'd say the same as Anne L about my process of getting there.
Congratulations Anne, and all of the rest of us working on getting there and more there!
