Writers - Overcome Your Mountain
Do you sometimes feel like you're scaling a mountain?
You have a great idea or concept. You work hard for months to get it down in writing, only to find you come up against hurdle after hurdle to get it accepted...by agents or publishers?
Well, don't give up. The road to success is varied.
I came across this interesting article during the week I thought it might be nice to share.
How 10 Published Authors Got Their First Big break
Now, what appealed to me is the fact that there's no hard and fast way to success. Obviously, talent, focus and determination play their part. As does the ability to write well. But apart from that, you'll see how often even a well established author got rejected before they got their break. Some had to wait years for that first deal.
Then, in some cases, it came down to a question of simply being persistent, and being in the right place at the right time.
Any way - see what you think, and take from it what you can. :)
