In the mountain is the molehill

I can get frozen or driven by a deadline. When writing for CBS Arts & Entertainment I would wait until the deadline was on me and then get crazy when the editor wanted changes until I embraced the learning process and opportunity. Same thing happened just two days ago when the time came to submit some poetry; I waited until six hours before the deadline. It felt like a mountain and I probably could have made better choices on the poems I selected to send. Authors build a business out of writing; that is prospective I lack. So, instead of scaling the mountain to look for the Muse or perfection, I need to do my very best and climb my molehill or lose the opportunity to publish my work. Not much more that I can say about this simple yet inspiring and to the point article on Helping Writers Become Authors, 5 Writing Lessons I Learned Ghostwriting for New York Times Bestsellers by Kevin Kaiser. Thanks Kevin!

Comment on SHE WRITES article by VICTORIA ZACKHEIM

Victoria, I love your truth, and all responses are helpful. I have not published 'yet' and I am eagerly looking for agent/publisher and or to self-pub. I learned a piece of courage and resilience years ago, when a writing friend and I went to greet Allison Brennan; a #1 best selling author. My friend already knew Allison but other than for us only a couple of people stopped by and that Border's was packed. Still Allison talked to each of us and few others like we really mattered.
