Well folks, I’ve done it. I’ve taken the leap, dived right in at the deep end, set myself up for a fall or perhaps taken another step to achieving my dream?
I’ve submitted my work to agent. Multiple agents in fact.
I’m not now going to sit here and type up a load of advice about ‘this is how you do a synopsis blah, blah, blah…’
The fact is I still don’t know how to write a synopsis, I suspect mine was a bit rubbish! It was also the most painful thing I’ve ever written. Originally I thought it would take me a couple of hours.
Ten hours would be a better estimate.
But I’ve done it, this might go nowhere but then again…
If I can do it then you certainly can.
If you’re anything like me, then there’s always that doubt in your head. That little voice that tells you whatever you do is not good enough.
Well, whatever your field you always need to practice. Everything can be improved, but before that your work needs to exist.
The great writers of our time all started out with a blank sheet of paper and the stories in their heads; but it takes time to find the words.
The finest sculptures were crafted by people driven by a desire to make something beautiful, they all had to start a chip at a time.
So here’s my call to you:
Yes I mean you.
Go and do something amazing.
