When I relaunched my blog, I knew I’d eventually hit a wall. Every writer who produces consistent works does. The other day I thought about moving my blog to three days a week instead of every day.
The reason? I was not sure about the post that was about to go live.
If I’m honest I thought it was merely okay. It was fantastic when I wrote it but in the light of the early morning it felt strained. Now, I wasn’t sure how I felt about it.
Then it went live.
I’m thrilled to say I had the most follows I’ve had in several months. I had the most views of the day that week and I had some great comments.
The message of this post is simple. The old adage – you never know if you don’t try -is still true.
It also shows that you never know what can happen if you put in the effort. But it does increase the odds about 100%.
In the words of Seth Godin, Ship it! You’ll either have something to learn and grow from or you’ll succeed.
An editor or agent may love your story.
A novel may ready to be converted into an e-book and posted on Amazon or Smashwords.
So try. Give an effort worthy the task.
