Jackie Pelham: It will never see daylight if you stick it in a drawer, so submit, submit, submit.
Jimmy Pudge: You need at least one asshole in your story for it to be good.
Freddie Remza: Read dialogue aloud to be sure it sounds natural.
Dixon Rice: Find ways to get extra eyes on your work before it’s submitted or published – but not anyone you sleep with.
Linda Robinson: How to cook a novel: stir together a house of lives, a lot of love, tons of troubles, wonderful words, and a rash of revisions, then 'beat' well and bake until done.
