6 Surprising Mistakes That Make Writers Look Like Amateurs... and How to Avoid Them

Friday, April 6, 2012

Writers are perhaps some of the least fragile people I know. We are brave. Our stories are written. We are strong. We accept criticism. We are flexible. Our stories change. Often. We are determined. Our files are full of rejection letters. We are vigilant. We will get published. Again and again. Fragile? Hardly.

Our thoughts may be fragile, so writing our stories is a great way for us to keep it at bay. Yesterday, I got a great new idea for a shiny new story! Today, I will explore its possibilities.

Remember to read all my A to Z posts to uncover the secret message and win a book! First person to discover the message is the winner. Good luck.

  1. Great word for the day. Some days I feel fragile but then I realize that writing takes great courage.

  2. You've captured the writer perfectly, Christie...welcome to the blogging challenge!

  3. I think of a writer as strong but somewhat brittle. Sure we're not fragile, but certain things can hurt us very intensely.

  4. Carrie, Some days it takes more than great courage.

    Jarm, Thanks! Hope to see you 'round!

    Misha, Strong but brittle sounds good to me. Yes, pain still hurts. Thanks for stopping by.
