Find a Mentor!!!
Halo fine friends! I’m on the road and not blogging, but I HAVE been revising… big revising… and hit a theme that I thought addressed the Insecure Writer’s Theme well, and so I thought I’d share and hit that first Wednesday with it.
First: don’t forget to visit all the OTHER insecure writers!!!
Well I’ve found the KEY!!! There is always a selection of people who have ALREADY done what you want to do next!!! And you can follow them around and emulate them and learn from them and it makes it SO MUCH EASIER! Which is not to say easy, but there is a sort of manual, if you will.
Right now I am editing what was written as a BOOK (A Shot in the Light), but I’ve decided to release it SERIALLY. So I am following Susan Kaye Quinn around shamelessly, and reading both her Debt Collector series and Hugh Howey’s Wool series.
