In my opinion, the best piece of advice I’ve heard is to always listen to editors and or betas. Sure, some of what they say are opinions and you might think just because you’ve studied the grammar bibles, taken all the classes, etc, you know everything about writing.
You can still be wrong about flow, the content, how you’ve presented your characters etc.
Never believe you know it all and if unsure, ask for several people to read it. You’ll feel much better before you submit. I love my writing and how it’s grown over the short time. I’ve taken the classes, still not great at grammar but hey we all have our faults. And even though i’ve been doing this for almost 2 years now, I still have plenty to learn. The key is to listen to those who know more than you and never get a big head about it.
Believe me, your readers will thank you for it!
Comment and win a copy of Smooth Like Latte and a 5 GC from Amazon. Here is the blurb:
Brendan Walsh is an uptight business executive working for his father and missing out on real life due to his relentless drive for success. Fearing his homophobic father’s wrath – and the potential to destroy his financial future – Brendan hides is true orientation and lives a life of boring celibacy.
Upon meeting Davori Jenkins when the hunky barista serves him a latte just the way he likes it, Brendan takes a chance, leaving his number with the tip in the hopes of changing his future love life.
Will Brendan be able to come clean with his father – risking his fortune – or will he take a chance at losing a man who he wants as his future?
Warning: This is an m/m interracial romance. Real romance. Some sappiness is ahead with two very good looking men who are searching for that happy ever after ending.
