Found this post on the wonderful blog 101 Books, where Robert is reading his way through Time Magazine’s 100 Greatest Novels. This is a letter F. Scott Fitzgerald, one of my favorite writers, wrote to his friend who had sent him work to be critiqued. HIs frank, yet heartfelt, reply is a good lesson to us all on how we should approach our work. No matter how accomplished we are, but especially if we are just starting out. This letter really spoke to me and I wanted to share with y’all what I found to be very inspirational.
