The critique contest is officially over. Finalists will be announced next week. Thanks for your patience during this time. I know some of you weren’t able to get much out of my last few posts because you didn’t enter the contest, but next week, I’ll have a contest for you. That’s right. A CONTEST FOR EVERYONE. I just have to come up with a prize…
If there were a recipe for getting published, it would look something like this:
Great understanding of the craft
Decent comprehension of grammar
Someone in the industry (like a fellow writer) to critique your work
A load of perseverance
Tons of patience
A network of supportive writer friends
One or more computers
A fire pit or shredder for rejections
A dash of good luck
A sprinkle of the right place at the right time
Mix all ingredients together and cross your fingers. Results may vary.
Did I miss anything? I’m not the best cook, so it’s possible. What would you add?
