Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary. Uta Hagen
As writers, there are many guidelines to follow in order to elude those nasty rejection letters. It’s important to follow the guidelines put out by publishers. We must find a way to fall somewhere within the confines of what they are looking for… but, that doesn’t mean we must write cookie-cutter fiction or non-fiction.
Meet the guidelines and move beyond them… be extraordinary.
