Heinlein on Writing

Science Fiction writer Robert Heinlein had a few simple rules on writing:

1. Write
2. Finish what you write
3. Send it out
4. Keep it out there until it is accepted
5. Only edit thereafter according to editorial direction

There's no mystery to being a successful author, just a lot of hard work, some talent, and a few lucky breaks, but mostly hard work.
