I’m also more than ready for some success. How about you? Would you like to see some success roll your way? Would you like to see one of your articles published or a book you are working on gobbled up by an agent or publisher?
The article I wrote today on HubPages will take you step by step through the submission process. I hope it helps you, and I also hope that you give it a try and submit some work. One thing I know for sure is success will not be handed to you. You have to do the footwork and get yourself dirty.
QUOTE OF THE DAY
“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.”
Where else can you find a quote from a race car driver? LOL
Despite the source, the quote is right on for today’s discussion. Determination and commitment…..mix in a little talent and you are on your way to the Big Show in this writing field.
SITE OF THE DAY
Here are the submission guidelines for Indiana Review. I just picked a periodical at random so you can see what all the fuss is about. When you submit to a magazine, these guidelines must be followed to the letter. No deviation will be accepted, so read carefully.
TIP OF THE DAY
Take your rejection letters and hang them on your wall above your computer. Let them serve as motivation to work harder and not give up. Remember, a rejection letter does not mean you are a poor writer.
PROMPT OF THE DAY
You know the drill….what does this photo mean to you?
WRITER OF THE DAY
Say hello to my good friend Mary. She is known on HubPages as Tillsontitan and she has a great series of articles about the Academy Awards. You can find her here.
THOUGHT OF THE DAY
So many things to consider. Do I do a blog? How do I best network? How do I write a business plan? Do I have any budgeting for advertising? Where will I find the time? Am I good enough? And on and on it goes.
With the internet and the new technology that seems to come out daily, our heads are spinning as we try to learn new tools that can advance our careers. Remember one thing……
There is no substitute for good writing! First you must work your craft and then you worry about working the network.
FAREWELL OF THE DAY
But never fear, I will be back tomorrow and wish you all a great weekend. I, for one, am going to shut it all down this weekend and get outside and enjoy some serious summer weather. I hope you remember to recharge your personal batteries so that you never lose the love of writing.
