As a writer, what are the tips and techniques for dealing with the inevitable, but dreaded, rejection slip? How can writers develop the thick skin the publishing world demands... and learn to see that 'no' isn't personal? What are some steps for keeping going, even when feeling, let's face it, a bit of despair when wondering who wants to read one's work?
Tim Waggoner has faced these questions time and again as a writer... and gone on to publish numerous stories and novels.
He wrote his first story at the age of five, when he created a comic book version of King Kong vs. Godzilla on a stenographer's pad. It took him a few more years until he began selling professionally, though. Overall, he has published close to thirty novels and three short story collections, and his articles on writing have appeared in Writer’s Digest and Writers’ Journal, among other publications. He teaches creative writing at Sinclair Community College and in Seton Hill University’s Master of Fine Arts in Writing Popular Fiction program. Learn more about Tim at www.timwaggoner.com
