This Month’s Writing Theme: Advice

There are times in your life when you feel you need to speak with someone, anyone on any particular topic. That you need information, materials, whatever the case may be. That’s where the advice of others can come in very handy, especially if that advice is coming from someone who’s been through the same obstacles, has had the same issues you’re having.

What is one of the best pieces of advice you’ve gotten lately?

Example: I have been writing for a few years now and trying to do EVERYTHING myself. I spoke with an author I felt was successful in the same genre and even though their advice was what you read about, sometimes you just need to be told by someone before it really sinks. She told me to hire a cover artist, get an editor to clean up my manuscript, and find betas. Though I haven’t gotten an editor yet and I’ve put my covers on hold, I have gotten a few betas to read my book. It didn’t go so well and I realize there is a lot of work that needs to get fixed, but that doesn’t mean I won’t take their advice.  

My journey has led me to this moment, this time and this adventure. I forge forward to provide great stories and helpful information to those who were once in my position. Searching and yearning for something more. To those searching, keep to your journey. You’ll reach your destination. Enjoy the adventure, learn from the obsticles, and stive for your dreams.
