Australians overcoming adversity/obstacles #2

We talked Aidan out of doing Greg Wiggle. So he's now doing Paul Jennings. Paul apparently had his first story rejected when he was a teenager and then didn't start writing again and have his first book published until he was 42 years old.

I'm glad he persevered. I quite enjoyed Round the Twist. I think it was the living in the lighthouse thing that really captured my imagination.

As a writer, Paul Jennings' story of rejection gives me a lot of hope! JK Rowling received some rejection too. I bet those publishers are kicking themselves.

I love Round the Twist. I was so excited to find the first season of the original TV series (from 1989) in my local public library a couple of years ago.
