John Michael graduated from Harvard Medical School with an M.D. in 1969, by which time he'd published four novels, one garnering the the Edgar Award. He published three more novels that same year (1969) -- and it was the second one that established him as a best-selling author. You may have heard of The Andromeda Strain.
Okay. Let me repeat that: while attending medical school, Michael not only wrote numerous books, but he got them published.
I'm in awe.
When I start thinking that I haven't any time to write, I realize that it's just a matter of priorities. After all, I, too, have twenty-four hours in a day...just like Michael.
What about you? Who are your writing heroes and why? What have they done to appear herculean in your eyes? How do you gain strength from their courageous battles?
