Gems from a summer SCBWI conference agent panel:

Keep Trying. Keep going, even on those days you want to curl up and hide under the bed. Keep going.

Don't rush your endings.

Do it because you love it. Be willing to scrap a manuscript, because each one brings us to the next. Seek out your peers.

From the wonderful and witty Carolyn Mackler:

Aim high! Remember the excitement, hope and novelty of the teen years. Anything can happen -- your life can change in an instant.
