It took Cory Doctorow ten years ...

"It took ten years for me to sell a story to a "major" market, and during that time, I racked up hundreds of rejections. Looking back on it, I can't really understand why I kept on, except that I couldn't stop. I'm glad I kept at it, but man, what a grind that was."
-- Cory Doctorow, in an offhand aside on a post on BoingBoing yesterday: http://boingboing.net/2012/10/01/how-frederik-pohl-became-a-pul.html
