Blog Chain time again! :D
This time, the lovely Cole Gibson started by posing this challenge:
This blog chain is a game!
Your subject is writerly advice. (I just made that word up. Hee) Pretend you are addressing a crowd of aspiring authors eager to soak in your words of knowledge. The problem is, you've only been given a time slot of five seconds. In one sentence (no more than 20 words), please summarize the most important words of wisdom you can impart.
Check out her pearl o' wisdom here, and please leave one of your own: (http://colegibsen.blogspot.com/2009/08/blog-chain-post-only-one.html) The best part about this topic, is that EVERYONE can play! Leave a pearl of wisdom on her comments, or here, and I'll pass them along.
Hooray for group knowledge! :)
But, no pressure, this means I have to contribute my own tidbit of advice, the most important thing I've learned so far in 20 words or less.
Okay, no more stalling. Here goes!
Take it slow--make sure your writing is the best it can be, then research all you can before querying!
BOOYAH! 20 words exactly.
Now it's your turn! What is the one Wisdom Nugget you'd like to bestow upon newbie writers, or wish someone had bestowed upon you?
I'd love to hear! :)
Next up, answering this question is Kate Karyus Quinn on her blog tomorrow: http://katekaryusquinn.blogspot.com/. Don't miss it!
