Saturday, January 4, 2014

A few days ago I posted Ten Wishes for Writers in the New Year and asked you to add to the list. Here are a few additions: 

May 2014 bring you: 

  1. Writing time carved out of your day with NO distractions. 
  2. Ideas that pop into your head and won't let go until you write them all down. 

  3. A "brutally honest" critique group to help you tighten up your manuscripts. 
  4. The wisdom to listen with an open mind, not get defensive and make the changes that strengthen your story. 
  5. The COURAGE to submit. 
  6. The persistence to continue submitting in the face of rejection.
  7. An editor or agent to invest in your story, your ideas and you. 
  8. A contract or multiple ones to help you share your story with the world. 
  9. Time to post your marvelous work via social media. 
10. Perseverance to keep writing and do it all over again. 

Here are some wonderful additions: 
11. Writing buddies that will absorb your tears and celebrate your triumphs all day long!(Linda Vigen      Phillips)
12.  I wish for all the joy of a surprise email with a publishing offer. (Gretchen Griffith)

 Let's keep this list going. Please leave a comment and I'll it add to the list.
