Aus einem Interview des Erie Reader mit Autor Chuck Palahniuk (Fight Club):

ER: Advice for any writer who’s struggling to make it and has been turned down by their publisher…?
CP: My advice is that it really doesn’t make a difference, because if you succeed, you still have to write another book. If don’t sell the book and it dies, you still have to write another book. So you come to the same place regardless of whether the book sells. What (writing teacher) Tom Spanbauer always told us was to write in such a way that the act of writing is its own reward – and that it’s so much fun that it doesn’t matter whether the book sells. The one fact is that you will always have to write another book, so get used to it.
