The Bumpy Road to Publication… And How to Prepare for a Smoother Ride
Bonjour Writers and Muse Daters. Some of you may know that I studied French Literature in Paris–what a joy and an honor to be able to do. It was really interesting to be back in Paris last year and see everything again.
While I was back, I thought about the idea of traveling to someplace else and experiencing some complications along the way. Even if you’re just taking a day trip you might get lost, might lose your map, someone might spill a drink in the car, and more. Things happen when you travel. There is always a risk.
I was thinking about the amazing writers who participated in the Writing Gym’s England Retreat. These writers travelled all the way across the United States then travelled all the way across the Atlantic Ocean for this retreat. That took a lot of time, investment, and courage to come to a totally new place and to try something new–this is pretty dang amazing.
Travel always takes some investment in yourself, to really take that risk and go to the next level. So what I was wondering–for those of you reading this–are you ready to do that for yourself and for your writing? To take that risk and to be that writer? Because these writers participated in the Writing Gym Retreat took that step. They had the courage to take that risk so that they could be successful in their writing careers.
Sometimes it’s really hard to cross that bridge of fear and to really accept that we’re going to take that step to be a writer. But if you are ready to be brave and to talk about your own journey, click this link.
