Be Extraordinary

Overcome the notion that you must be regular. It robs you of the chance to be extraordinary.  Uta Hagen

Just a short post for today. I saw this quote yesterday and decided to pass it along. I think we all spend a great deal of time trying to fit in, yet in order to succeed, we must strive to stand out.

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.
