Monday Writing Myths #14

Welcome to another installment of Writing Myths Monday. I hope this Monday morning finds you well. Let’s jump into this week’s myth.

Writing Myth #14 – Overnight success stories

Don’t believe the hype. It is extremely rare that “someone off the street” decides their going to write a novel, write it, sell it and make a million dollars. What actually happens is the writer has been practicing the craft of writing, working hard and every piece they write gets better. They wrote a story that clicked with not only a publisher but also a certain segment of the reading public. They were a ten year overnight success.

Focus on writing a great story and the other stuff will come.

Until next time, be happy, stay safe, and good writing vibes into the universe.
