via sdn: Phyllis Whitney has died, at age 104. [NYT link]
Ms. Whitney ascribed her success as a writer to persistence and an abiding faith in her abilities. "Never mind the rejections, the discouragement, the voices of ridicule (there can be those too)," she wrote in "Guide to Fiction Writing." "Work and wait and learn, and that train will come by. If you give up, you’ll never have a chance to climb aboard."
