First, I really wish that I could go to a writer's conference. I am saving my pennies, but it seems that there is always something more important like gas for the car or groceries or paying the Down With Debt fund. One day, God willing and the creek doesn't rise, I will be there soaking up all that wisdom and feasting on all the opportunities offered. One day it will happen.
However, the article which is the link of this title will help any blossoming author or even some of the veterans who may need some sage advice. It is crucially important to have all your ducks in a row before entering the water.
This is also true of bloggers and freelance article writers. It would seem that what makes publishers sit up and take notice is what sells. This is what Eric Wilson is so concerned about and frankly, Christian authors, too. Who wants to pour blood, sweat and tears into something which will never sell? It is fine to have a hobby, but God gives a gift to be used and shared for the edification of His church. That should be the main goal of every gifted writer, right?
Click on the link and soak in this sage advice, then put it into practice. What has worked before will work again.
