For Once, It's Good to Be Short!

According to Ohio State University English Professor, Lee K. Abbott, "You'll need to write as much junk as you are tall before you'll ever produce something that somebody will want to read twice."

I'm 5'6" and shrinking. I've probably written twice my height in junk so perhaps my day is coming.

For more perspectives on the writing life, tune in to interviews with Professor Abbott and many other writers including Alice McDermott, Tim O'Brien, Michael Connelly, Jeanette Walls, Rick Moody and many more on The Kacey Kowars Show.
