We have to point out here that Anne is well educated. She earned her B.A. in Political Science in 1964 from the San Francisco State University, and in 1972 graduated with an M.A. in Creative Writing. Still, she gives this selfless advice and opens the door wide for all wannabe writers, such as myself.
This one hits pretty much closed to home, because I have never earned a bachelor's degree and have consistently failed in college. It's wise words like these that inspired me to keep reaching for my dream in spite of not having a diploma.
I am happy to report that this year, 2016, I'll be a published novelist, and also working on new novels. The only one that can stop as from being writers is ourselves. So, don't. Pick up your pen and write that story that wants to pour itself out of you onto the page.
