Writer – you can do better, read on

Yes, you’re a writer. You’ve sweated for years, worked on that story. Had friends and fellow writers critique it.

I have news for you, but before I reveal my message here is a little story.

I created a critique group in Pasadena CA. We were discussing quality of writing. One of the members mentioned a book that was a phenomenal best seller online, went “traditional,” sold more copies, became a series of books and the first of that series was made into a movie.

I never read the book. I did not want to read it, but during one of my meetings, I asked if anyone else had. Four women moaned and said it was poorly written.

And here is my point. That book, in its form, was a financial success.

Your book/story/article might be better than that.

Now here is my message.

You might have to step away. You might have to put it aside. You might have to swallow your ego. But you know it.
Sure you might luck out and sell a poorly written story. But you know what-

You can do better.
