Oh dear, this world is based on timing. Did you know? Well if you didn’t you must live a very luxurious life and for that I currently despise you.
How many weeks of vacation you get.
What time to eat lunch.
What time to pull the cookies out of the oven.
What time you get to write.
What times the kids should go to bed.
When to finish your first draft.
How long it takes you to finish.
When to send out your query letter.
I am a firm believer that in the writing world it comes down to a lot of hard work and a little luck. Timing is luck. Timing is everything.
Of course doing your research is also equally as important. As a whole you must take your time to make sure all your ducks are in a row. So be sure to take those cookies out of the oven… the warm gooey center is the best part.
What is your take on timing?
