EP. 52 WHAT IS YOUR ARGUMENT?
No one will openly tell you how absolutely difficult it is to stay not only relevant in our ever-changing climate – but how to stay careered, and constantly producing interesting and creative works during a lifetime. Most of these so-called job skills can’t be learned in a classroom or seminar – they must be earned by hard work and a special kind of dedication to the craft. Douglas Kennedy and I both share an affinity for this subject – each of us sharing a history of facing rejection and dealing with the critics. This in fact goes back to Kennedy’s early days as a writer, and trying, unsuccessfully, to impress some members of the supposed elite at his University’s literary journal.
