Blog Schedule

I post on Monday with an occasional random blog thrown in for good measure. I do my best to answer all comments via email and visit around on the days I post.

Today in History

Isaac Asimov was born on this day in Russia. He was a prolific writer, writing some 5oo books! And lots of it was non-fiction. Some the first science fiction I ever read was his Foundation series.

A favorite quote of his is:
You must keep sending work out: you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its heart off in a drawer. You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one. If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist.

This is also the day in 1938 that Simon and Schuster was founded.


  1. Great quote...and he is so right...I always try to remember that the first MS that even the most famous author's sent out was not published the first had to be sent out many, many times....
