No Talent?

Here's a quote I'll bet many writers can identify with:

It took me fifteen years to discover I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous.

--Peter Benchley, author of Jaws

Would that I could experience that same ephiphany. I already, at times, think I have no talent (like when the rejections come.) I'm just waiting for the fame part.

::takes a sip of coffee and stares out the window::

Still waiting. LOL

We writers are nothing if not patient.

Maybe Rip Van Winkle was a writer.
