|Books, books, books ... I want to be published!|
You want to get published. You're new at this. You're having a difficult time getting noticed and you feel like screaming "uncle!" and just throwing in the towel ... and yet you have a burning need, a hunger, to get published and you want it so bad that you can taste it!
I understand, I really do. It's tough and, because it's a publisher's market out there, it's getting tougher all the time.
Well I could encourage you to rewrite. I could just as easily encourage you to edit, edit, and edit some more ... but today I've decided to remind of one simple thing: the magic word here is perseverance.
Perseverance. Remember this word when you're feeling down: It only takes one "yes" and you're published.
It doesn't matter whether it's an article in a newspaper, a short story in a magazine, or one poem in a textbook. You are published.
Each publishing credit you achieve is one more validation to other publishers and editors that they should look at your work, too. It's also a validation to you that your work is good.
Be persistent. Persevere ...
Have a nice weekend!
