How to get published!

I stole the link to this video from JM Tohline. You HAVE to watch it…

The link to his site has a good article as well.  Definitely recommend the time it takes to read it.

  1. HA! This should be required watching for all hopeful writers. It’s funny because it’s true. When my boss found out I wrote a book, he said, “You’re going to be famous.” I said, “Umm, probably not.” People have the perception that just because you wrote a book, or have a great idea for one like in the video, you’re going to make millions and be on the New York Times bestseller list. I wish. ; )

  2. Of the few times I’ve said, “I’m a writer,” people get that look on their face like they’re talking to at least a D-list celebrity. Or someone who has the delusion of becoming one. I think it’s like any artistic profession. Assumptions abound, until you actually know the work involved.

  3. I love these animated computer voice movies. Man, is that delusional or what?

    I think I’ll go call up an agent now and see if I can skip ahead and get a movie deal…. 😉
