Hi, my name is Tiffany and I'm new to AALBC.

Recommended Posts

I look forward to the various discussions on writing and how to land an agent. I also want to learn to perfect my craft before releasing my debut children's picture book and novel. I don't want to be put in the genre of urban fiction/street --a niche market. My books are more than that.

I know that feeling, FEAR.

It often holds me back.

The writers block,

the numerous rewrites,

the right word,

the various opinions,

the what to and not to write.

Then comes the self-doubt.

What if?

What if they don't like my pitch,

my query letter,

my synopsis,

my title,

my opening paragraph,

my sample chapters,

my partial, or full?

Do I let these trivial things hold me down?


I keep it moving.

I open up my laptop and type,

Type like my life depends on it.

Type something that they'll eventually like.

I refuse to let FEAR define me,

because I control my destiny.

Good luck with your writing. I guess the best thing to do is look for a community locally to get feedback on your writing. The next thing is to use this site as reference and look up agents and to purchase a Writer's Market to pursue an agent if you are looking at traditional publishing. If you have the time and spirit then hire an editor, this site has references and self publish. The world is yours if you want to really pursue the business. Who knows you may crack the market wide open and do great things. Write questions and I'm sure we will all look and answer if it fits out scope of expertise so you have an online community to call on. Stay Motivated!
