Bila Penerbit Menolak Naskahmu, Jangan Menyerah! Jane Austen pun Pernah Merasakannya, dan Ini 4 Tipsnya untuk Kamu
Karena menyerah memang hanya untuk pecundang, kan?
"Reading and writing, like everything else, improve with practice. And, of course, if there are no young readers and writers, there will shortly be no older ones. Literacy will be dead, and democracy - which many believe goes hand in hand with it - will be dead as well." -- Margaret Atwood
“We live and breathe words. .... It was books that made me feel that perhaps I was not completely alone. They could be honest with me, and I with them. Reading your words, what you wrote, how you were lonely sometimes and afraid, but always brave; the way you saw the world, its colors and textures and sounds, I felt--I felt the way you thought, hoped, felt, dreamt. I felt I was dreaming and thinking and feeling with you. I dreamed what you dreamed, wanted what you wanted--and then I realized that truly I just wanted you.” ― Cassandra Clare dalam karyanya Clockwork Prince
Tak berbahagiakah engkau, saat justru dari tanganmu sendirilah sejarah menjadi alurmu? Tak riangkah engkau, saat justru peradaban tengah engkau sumbangi dengan goresan kekata yang tengah engkau upayakan?
Jangan pernah biarkan karya yang kamu hasilkan tak bermakna dalam bagi para pembaca.
