E is for Effort

Now, I know there are new writers out there. One's that woke up, made an effort to write a novel and now want to get it published. Congrats. Seriously, you are amazing little wonders. I'm sure your work is even more amazing. Please don't let someone squash your dreams. Please don't let someone shred your efforts to be positive, or bash your work. Instead:
Make an Effort to say nice things, even about something you hate to read.
Make an Effort to Learn even if you think you know there is everything there is to know.
Make an Effort to purchase at least one novel in a genre you never found interesting. (Seriously, something might surprise you)
Make an Effort to read at least one book about scene structure, grammar whatever that is writing related. (You might pick up something)
Make an Effort to write, read, and critique with kindness. Because a little bit goes a long way.


  1. You made this post for me didn't you . . . lol I will definitely put in the Effort needed to become published one day. Love your blog!

  2. Stopping by on the 6th day of the #Challenge to check on fellow writers. Looks like you are having fun and making new blogging friends. Congratulations. If you have time or interest, I am writing about gardening and related topics this month. Come and see me…I'll be waiting at the garden gate.

  3. sometimes those things do require effort, but they are definitely worth it!
    great advice!
    happy e day!
