When it comes to successful a author encouraging new writers, Anne Rice certainly does a great job in this video. Three things in particular stuck out to me:
1. Every year people break into the business that were no one. It’s no different now then it was then.
2. The publishing world is crying for new voices.
3. She dresses a little like Lestat.
So consider that today when you are working. She also tells us to write the book that’s “interesting to you”, to go where the pain is and write about what hurts. But most of all she tells us to “just write.”
The publishing world is looking for a new original voice…will it be yours?
