New Writer Tip #10 – Notice the Need
August 7, 2009 § 2 Comments
Remember my 10 Tips for New Writers? (Of course you do, and there are some astute additions others have left as well.)
Tip #10 says to “Do research and find publications that print work similar to yours. Send it to them.” A slight derivation I’m adding is “Notice the need and fill it.”
When Drash Pit posted the theme When You Lie Down & When You Rise Up this past week, I wanted to contribute, but ran out of time. So I found a poem I wrote during National Poetry Month and offered it, with the information that it had already been published on this blog.
Neena accepted it. She had a need and I was able to help.
When is the last time you’ve asked, offered or taken a chance?
