Q is for Sudipta Bardhan-Quallen

Born:  June 24, 1977
Excellent BooksChicks Run Wild, Quackenstein, and over a dozen others.  

From Her Life:  Sudipta enjoys swinging at the park, eating cake, and singing in the shower.

Advice for Aspiring Writers:   Sudipta has lots of advice for writers on her website.  I found this particularly interesting:  "I actually always say that [writers] should not send one thing to one editor until they have six publishable manuscripts in hand.  That way, if they get a good rejection, or a request to see more work, they are immediately ready to follow through on the lead."

I like that advice; I've heard it before. It's good to have more than one thing ready just in case a prospective agent or editor wants to see what else you have. I've read around the blogosphere writers who've had that requested of them.

It makes sense. And wouldn't it be fun to be asked for more and say, "Why, yes, here you go!"
