“Take a Chance on You: Submit Your Manuscript” by Joan Y. Edwards
Many of you are sitting on a manuscript. It may be hidden in your drawer because someone took the wind out of your sails. You stopped believing in your story. The only thing that can kill your story and its publication is you. Ultimately, you make the difference. Never Give Up on your story. Keep searching for a way to get your work published.
Critiques are personal opinions. They are not facts. Only use the opinions you believe are right…not just a little bit right…100% right. Follow your gut feelings. Honor yourself and your writing. You are important. The world needs your writing and your view on life.
Yes, it’s possible that you might find a better way of writing what you wrote.
Yes, it’s possible there are a few things you didn’t know, but find out later.
The question is:
Is this manuscript the absolute best it could be at this particular moment in time? If your answer is “YES,” go for it. Take a chance on you. You’re worth it.
