Be Wary. Seven Deadly Sins.

June 6, 2013

A writer is faced with a host of roadblocks. Here are seven deadly sins to avoid.

  1. Fantasy. You will likely not be invited on Oprah.
  2. Procrastination. Enough said.
  3. Scattered focus. Complete what you are working on now, before launching the next project.
  4. Trends. Haven’t we had enough vampires?
  5. Blame. It is not the industry’s fault. Or your mother’s.
  6. Clichés, adverbs, and words from a thesaurus. Stay away.
  7. Stress. It’s a long, long road
