The Secret

For the past year and a half, WARA members have been sharing information, links and their own experiences where writing is concerned. From characters to conflict, writing jargon to punctuation, we hope we've been of some help, not only to each other, but to anyone passing through and reading our blog.

There's one question, especially from new writers, that still remains unanswered. That question is WHAT'S THE SECRET to writing and getting published. The answer is that there is no one secret. Instead, there are many small ones, each hiding inside all those topics we've been blogging about. The biggest, however, is to sit down, put your hands on your keyboard and start writing.

For the next few months, we're taking a break from sharing the bits and pieces of knowledge we've learned and will be sharing a little more about ourselves, how we view writing, and how writing affects our lives. We may go back later to refresh many of the topics we've visited, but until then, if you have a question, check the list of labels on the right side of this blog. We're also always happy to help with any question anyone might have...if we can. And if we can't, someone (Penny!!) might have the perfect link to the answer needed. :)

Thanks for visiting! And, hey, WARA members, thanks for sharing!!!

Always happy to share, Rox! Or search for the answer. ;D Thanks for being our guiding force, even if you did burst my bubble by telling us there's no secret. It's Santa Claus all over again.

The secret is to write a book, write another book and then write another book, send them out, get rejections, revise them, send them out again, get more rejections and write more books until you wear down every agent and editor out there....or....until you find your true voice in a well crafted, tightly honed story that resonates with one special editor somewhere...out in the big, bad world of publishing

Always happy to have you share, Penny!

Nothing good ever comes easy, does it?
