Women writers must learn to say "no," for the sake of our sanity and for the sake of our art. We won't have time to say "yes" to writing if we say "yes" to everyone and everything else.

Susan Schorn is the Writeous Woman of the Week and someone with an amazing story on the art of saying no, which she learned in a self-defense class. This week she shares that story on the See Jane Write Magazine website. 

Susan Schorn holds black belts in Kyokushin and Seido karate and is currently working toward self-defense instructor certification. She writes for McSweeney's and The Rumpus and lives in Austin, Texas.

Her essay "Saying No" is an excerpt from her book Smile at Strangers: And Other Lessons in the Art of Living Fearlessly, published this year by  Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Publishing Company.

You can read her essay here.
