RIP Mistress of Pern

Fantasy novelist Anne McCaffrey, best known for her Dragonriders of Pern books, passed away yesterday. She was 85.

Her legacy with live on as will her words of wisdom for aspiring writers.

“First — keep reading. Writers are readers. Writers are also people who can’t not write. Second, follow Heinlein’s rules for getting published: 1. Write it. 2. Finish it. 3. Send it out. 4. Keep sending it out until someone sends you a check. There are variations on that, but that’s basically what works.”
