they must need bears - Eleven things I've learned from a career in genre publishing.:

"1. Writing will not make you happy.

2. Selling will not make you happy.

3. Good reviews will not make you happy.

4. Being happy will make you happy.

5. I hope you like mushrooms.
6. And booze.
7. Editors are mostly tremendously nice and helpful people.
8. Chances are, you will starve.
9. It helps to be okay with that.
10. Or hate sleep.
11. I love my job."
- Elizabeth Bear
