Welcome to another Writing Myths Monday. Hopefully this Monday finds you well. Let’s jump into this weeks myth.
Writing Myth #7 I need to be connected to get published. Not so. I’m not saying it isn’t important to network and build a community of writers and other industry professionals. But it’s not more important than writing a good story. Getting published comes down to how well you tell and write your story. It doesn’t do a publisher or an editor any good to publish substandard work just because they know the author. Their reputation rides on the quality of what they publish. Be more concerned with the quality of your writing than getting to know the “right” people.
Have a wonderful week. Keep writing, be happy, stay safe and good writing vibes into the universe.
