For someone who thinks he's quite savvy with the ways of commercial enterprises, I can't believe how naive I've been on the writing business.
The last nine months have been a bit of a wake up call. I always thought that my writing was competent, that the plots to my stories were good, and that it was only case of knocking out a MS, and someone would snap me up.
I also had the misguided view that if I read a 'How to' book, then I would be doing it someone else's way, and compromising my own style.
If you are sitting there, pointing at the screen and laughing at me, then I really don't blame you. I think I'd be doing the same.
I think that all I really want to say in this post is that I'm grateful to my blogging friends who comment, and the ReviMo gang for their wisdom. I've finally realised that it's not a race, and that I need to make my work the best I can possibly make it before I start sending it to the people who have the power to make my dreams come true.
