Fate and Dr. Seuss

So I know this is the Teen Zone blog and I wouldn't normally talk about children's books, but I just read a great article about how Dr. Seuss got his start in publishing.

How Dr. Seuss Got His Start 'On Mulberry Street'

Two things really struck me about this article - how many times Dr Seuss' submissions to publishers were rejected before he got his break (it reminds me of this story I read about Amanda Hocking,) and how completely random the situation was that led to his big break.

I guess it just goes to show that life is random and you've got to keep on trying!
