Of course, hard work, but LUCK!

Hey, writer! Clearly we work hard to hone our crafts. Some of us spend years in the query trenches. Many of us spend a great deal of money  on critiques, books, conferences, and courses. Does that guarantee our success? Absolutely not.

When you are frustrated, and maybe even irritable, with where you are in your writing journey, please don’t forget how subjective this all is.

I’m still toiling away even though I have an agent now. (See, getting an agent is just one hurdle of many. It’s not the golden ticket to being published.)

You may feel that you’re doing everything right and getting nowhere. You could be write. Despite all of your hard work, you may still need the stars to align and the right editor to champion your work.

Don’t underestimate the role of luck in all of this. Just know that out of 365 days, one of them is likely to be your lucky day.

Let’s keep writing!
