Weekly Quote Wednesday Isaac Asimov and Lynsay Sands

Weekly Quote Wednesday
Writing quote

“You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head 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.”

― Lynsay Sands, The Hellion and the Highlander
