This morning Kris talks about writers, writing, listening to critics, workshops, and trying to write a perfect story. Mostly trying to write a perfect story.
As I have said a bunch of times here, there is no such thing as a perfect story, and never will be. And on the publishing side, there is no such thing as a perfect cover or a perfect copyedit or whatever. Never happens.
So go read Kris’s new post today. Great advice to those of you who feel a story must be written and rewritten and rewritten to make perfect.
One of her best posts and worth the time to go read.
And read the comments as well. She’s just getting them approved as I type this and some of them are pretty good. Especially from the longer-term professional writers.
(I will have a new article up later tonight about pricing books in a vacuum. With math.)
