That is the mantra I have been using with my writing. After all, how hard can it be? I’m smarter than the average bear ….
How embarrassing is that?
It has taken me three years to realize that “My Way” doesn’t work, if I want my writing to be marketable. My New Year’s resolution for this year is to humble myself; read the books I already have on my shelf (on writing), listen to other authors, attend workshops, take on-line classes, do my research … and make my writing reader friendly.
How hard can it be? It’s a lot harder than it looks. I wasted three years learning that there is a fine line between perseverance and being stubborn.
Is there a time where your perseverance crossed that fine line?
