Haven't all of us been told at one time or another to not assume any thing. Yet, again and again we do it.
Like assuming five cloudy days with snow on the ground wouldn't really bother us. After all, if you don't have to get out in it, why should you care.
Sounded good, in reality, I'm not doing so good with the white stuff. But lucky, we have sun today which has brighten my mood.
Or assuming that because you wrote a book, some one out there is going to want to publish it. This I think is the biggest for new writers. We are so proud of our accomplishment that we don't understand the real difference between writing a good book and writing a book that will sell (those two things aren't necessarily the same thing.)
But don't give up, the great thing about assumptions is they can also be wrong. Like not thinking a book would sell because it had been turned
down by one publishing house. Then, you get an email that another publisher wants to buy it. I'm thrilled to say "Baby Decision" my second book after
"Pregnancy Plan" has sold to Amira Press.
Merry Christmas. I wish all of you a great week.
All the best to you and yours,
