Snoopy and my writing dreams

Lately Miss Fraser and I have been reading Peanuts together as her bedtime story, thereby revisiting one of my own childhood favorites, and I realized this was my first glimpse of the writer's life.

In a weird way, a cartoon beagle with a typewriter made me understand as a very little kid that somewhere there was a person behind every single book I read, and that someday I might be an author myself--if I was willing to tough it out and deal with rejection along the way.

  1. As a writer, my favorite remains the rejection letter that said "We're sending along another 12 rejection letters for the next 12 manuscripts you send us!"
