I loved the coverage of the best selling novel and soon-to-be-released movie, The Help, on 20/20 yesterday. See clip here. Imagine Kathryn Stockett's manuscript was rejected 60 times. Reminded me of Steve Berry who had his first book rejected over 80 times before it finally attracted the attention of a publisher. Each of these two writers persisted and made his/her manuscript better and better. There is a lesson right there.
The Help of course was one of our book club's favorite picks. The movie is to be released early August.
