Since I bought this book I have had numerous articles published. Andrew Crofts is a realist, with sections on "Learning to Bear Rejection" as well as inspirational stories of people who've made a success of writing. The best bits are the practical tips, eg on how to sell stories; how to tell if your idea for a story is a good one; and even such nitty gritty stuff as keeping good records. Not every chapter will apply to everyone, but the book as a whole is a valuable compendium of sensible advice. My favourite tip: the best way to handle rejection is to have so many projects on the go that there's always something to be optimistic about.
