X is for X-ing Ts (and dotting Is)


Because seriously, what word actually starts with X. But this is an important point...

Whether you are submitting to agents or publishers or are self-publishing, it is so critical to cross (X) your Ts and dot your Is...

What this means is READING ALL THE DIRECTIONS

Research who wants what

Frame all this PERSONALLY for whomever the gatekeeper is.

Have your work checked, rechecked, edited, proofread...


Can YOU think of other Ts that need X-ing or Is that need dotting?


And gang... only two days left!!!

Yes, please read the directions and submission guidelines.

I'm a rebel and hate following directions. I'm also unpublished.

This is the first time I recall seeing this X term used for A to Z. Nicely done.

That's all very good advice and sometimes I think we are in such a rush to send manuscripts out that we forget some of those steps.

Check everything as many times as you can then check some more.
