The writing business isn’t what it used to be. The days when writers wrote books, sat back and watched the publishers do all the rest of the work are gone. Nowadays, with the advent of the world wide web, even a writer with an agent, who gets traditionally published has to do a great deal of the marketing and networking. Even the big publishing houses don’t have the resources to put so many people to work on each writer’s behalf. So, what do we do? We work our asses off and we rely on the help of others. Quid pro quo. We help others by visiting their blogs, re-blogging, commenting and liking their posts, sharing their work . . . and we hope that the kindness will be reciprocated. We need each other, because we can’t do it all ourselves. So in the spirit of writers and bloggers helping each other, here is my quote.
Quote by John Wooden (An American Coach and Writer)
Another great quote by John Wooden.
“If you’re not making mistakes, then you’re not doing anything. I’m positive that a doer makes mistakes.”
