OH Prish, please don't think of me as bitter. I am not. Of course, in any field it's about hard work and the struggle to get accepted. In a writers case, even just to get read. I accept that. That's not my problem. Pick any self-help writing book as far back as you wish, and you will learn that only a handful, achieve what they promise in their title - to help the novice through enlightenment, by offering them gems of knowledge that will past a life time. Two such books K have read again and again are Dorothea Brande's uplifting 'Becoming a Writer' and Brenda Ueland's dreamy and poetic 'If You Want To Write'. See pix, please...Emm.
