Why Does It Seem So Difficult To Pursue My Dream? You’ve probably heard this a million times, but from the time I was a very young girl, I’ve been writing. I used to make little booklets with colored computer paper and fill them with short stories all the time. My grandparents and parents always encouraged my writing, but this dream was always pushed to the back of my mind. I pursued other things in college and ended up with a degree in psychology. Many times throughout my college career, I turned back to writing and became very motivated to write. I wrote tons of short stories, and I continuously go back to a book I started writing nearly three years ago with hardly any progress. I’ve learned in my writing classes through peer reviews that my writing isn’t as fantastic as my family led me to believe, which was discouraging. I also do not like to read, so how could I be a writer, anyway? Especially with the publishing rates. It’s all so discouraging, yet this is the only “dream” I’ve held onto for my entire life. Why is it so difficult for me to pursue my dream? I’ve never known what I was “born to do.”
Lol There are all kinds of opportunities with great publishers if you can tell a good story in a popular genre and you really understand how story works on every level.
The only thing that is maybe extremely hard is getting your book in physical brick and mortar stores across the USA or around the world. If you can accept that your book probably isn’t going to be the next Game of Thrones then there is no reason to give up on your dream. You don’t have to jump into self publishing either it isn’t the only other option.
I really wouldn’t take the “peer” reviews very seriously at all. Any kind of reviews are generally only one person’s opinion.
I’ve read more than one successful writer talk about how crap and ridiculous the peer review process is on writing courses.
Stephen King mentioned people in his writing class at college sitting around in a circle saying “it gave me a kind of sense of something, a feeling that I really just kinda, sorta can’t explain.” He said “If there is a feeling you kinda,sorta can’t describe maybe you are kinda, sorta in the wrong fucking class!” lol
It almost sounds as though your writing classes really knocked your self confidence. On the other hand though, being able to take constructive criticism on your writing is very important. As long as it genuinely is constructive and useful. My editor has all kinds of changes to words etc… (not so much to the plot or anything but line edits) I was perfectly happy to do them she was all apologetic about it, but I was happy to do them and just thrilled that she accepted my manuscript.
I’m not sure what you mean by “publishing rates” if you mean seeing your book all over the USA in every book store like Game of Thrones yes that is pretty hard, but there are many opportunities out there with magazines, ezines, independent publishers, BIG publishers digital first lines and as so many people here will tell you self publishing.
Don’t ever ever ever pay anyone for your “dream” though. There is a MASSIVE scam industry preying on wannabe writers who are ignorant of the real publishing industry and one of my elderly relatives got scammed. If a “publishers” website talks about “your dream of being published” they are pretty much guaranteed to be a scam. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=91qZ8noAZNc
Fake publishers take anything because all they care about is you giving them money.
Real publishers just have submission guidelines like this. http://masque-books.com/guidelines/
I think a lot of the reason people have it in their heads that getting published is so impossible is a combination of the scammers telling a lot of LIES about how hard it is to try and get people to pay for vanity publishing and disgruntled people that have been turned down a lot whining a lot about it and also spreading misinformation. Also a lot of silly people send manuscripts to agents and publishers that don’t take the kind of manuscripts they are sending which is just stupid. Do your research.
No you can’t be a writer if you don’t read you just can’t, but maybe that could change. You’re not liking to read makes no sense. All writers LOVE to read. Maybe you are depressed. 🙁
Maybe you are picking up the wrong sort of books.
Maybe you have dyslexia in which case maybe you could get into audio books.
How Much Business Will New Website Attract? I just set up a website for my step-fathers’ tow truck business. I put it on the open directory, different search engines, yellow pages, facebook, free classifieds. Going to put it on ezine articles. I read havign a website brings in 5-40% more business. Is what I’m doing going to bring in more customers? How long does it take to get new customers? I know it can take a while-depends how it’s marketed. I just don’t want to be doing all of this work for no results-new customers. Here’s a link to the website-if you have any suggestions on changing it to bring in more customers. I made it a very simple page. I think the simpler the better-less is more.
You might have one person a month from your city see the eszinearticle, they are as often used to help the search ranking of the company site the article credits links to. Probably not a good local marketing strategy, though a site can be one more place to authenticate your business for the search engines.
Getting into the free local listings that popup when someone searches Towing, your city, is probably the most powerful way to be found, those other directory listings can help strengthen the position of a local results. Google shows 7 A-G labeled stick pins on the first page of results, it might take some effort for a business in a competitive field to be seen there..
Google gets about 65% of the searches:
And don’t forget Bing
It probably helps to also have a company web site mentioning the address, the search ranking of the site may reflect on the position of your local listing. You could use a free host with a paid company domain name costing about $12/yr
There are some places page tips here:
Where Can I Find A Good Short Story Or Poetry Publisher? I’ve looked and looked, maybe I’m using wrong key words for my search. But I’ve been looking to publish a short story I wrote for a long time. As well as a few poems I wrote.
I don’t know where to even begin to look. So if you could help me out here, that would be fantastic!
Here is the story I’m looking to publish: (i’ve changed it a little bit so I don’t have copywrite or anything)
First of all, never put anything you want someone else to publish on the internet. Most magazines (including ezines) want First Rights, and you’ve already blown those by posting it. I’m not sure what you mean by “I don’t have copyright.” If you wrote the story, then the copyright belongs to you by default.
Second of all, having now read the first few paragraphs of your story, it needs drastic editing. You have an error in the second paragraph (you use “women” where you mean “woman.”). There’s a lot of attempted scene-setting, but the scene-setting you’re doing doesn’t actually serve the useful purpose of showing us what sort of world this is. You start with the weather, which is deadly, and proceed immediately to a flashback without telling us why we should care about this person with feathers. “The ground felt cool on her feet.” Is she barefoot? Is she even a human woman? Your timeline is confusing and all over the place–and nothing actually HAPPENS. Or, at least, if it does, I stopped reading before then.
I suggest you run this past some beta readers who are interested in improving the story rather than patting your head and telling you how wonderful it is.
Once you’ve polished the thing to within an inch of its life, THEN hit up the Submission Grinder and hunt for markets. http://thegrinder.diabolicalplots.com/thegrinder/Default.aspx
