Eyes on the Prize

Happy August!

This month’s IWSG question asks: What pitfalls would you advise other writers to avoid on their publication journey?

Whoa, hold on.

Law of Attraction, baby!

When you focus on pitfalls, you focus on failure.

But Grehan, you shout, danger abounds! Especially in publishing!

Then why take advice from fools* like me? Seek out quality advice. Find a professional compilation like Writer Beware from the SFWA, And follow the blogs of publishing pros.

Hey, how about a doodle? That, I can offer.


Law of Attraction: Keep your eyes on the prize.

*The Fool is my alter ego. You’ll see The Fool featured a lot on my blog.

Thank you to July’s IWSG co-hosts:

Erika Beebe  Sandra Hoover  Susan Gourley and Lee Lowery

  1. Thanks for the humor! It brightened my day. I think a lot of great advice and encouragement can be found in writing groups like IWSG. Sometimes, we just need a little helping hand.
    Have a great week!

    1. IWSG is a terrific group, Sandra. Their website is listed in the link I included, for best websites for writers. Thanks so much for stopping by!

  2. Hilarious! Quite right about focusing on the positive. But your doodle says it all – eyes on the prize, don’t look down! Great resource links, too.
