Keep Calm and Query On

Luke Reynolds wrote a brilliant essay about breaking down our writing walls that was recently featured in Vermont College's Hunger Mountain. Here's an excerpt:
"No matter how little you feel like it, no matter how futile it sometimes seems, you must keep writing. You must continue to send out queries. You must continue to make contact, believing that the words you write do possess all the possible power and beauty in them to affect one life."
"And should you choose to wade through the waters of fear, worry, criticism, and lack of discipline, you may find that the words you craft do, indeed, end up making a difference in one life.
(And that life may be your own.)"
