How Dr. Seuss Got His Start As A Writer

February 6, 2012

I often get asked the story about how I started as an author of CorelDRAW books. Part of the story is working hard and being ready when opportunity knocked. Yet it is just as important that I was at the right place at the right time when I saw an online post looking for authors.

NPR did a recent story entitled How Dr. Seuss Got His Start ‘On Mulberry Street’ and he followed a similar path. His first book was written and it was rejected 27 times. It was a chance meeting when walking down the street that led to his big break. You could even say that was the day that Theodor Geisel became Dr. Seuss. Now it is hard to find someone who isn’t familiar with the work of Dr. Seuss and some of the characters he created are burned into all of our minds.

One thing you can all learn from this is that first you have to work hard. It may seem as though that work isn’t paying off. It is then that you will feel you got lucky and got a huge break. It was all of that hard work that led to the good luck!
