Do you have what it takes to follow your bliss?
Too many talented writers are afraid to share their work before it’s “finished.” But the pursuit of so-called perfection is a relic from traditional publishing, a model that only hurts aspiring authors and compromises artistic freedom. My goal with The Miracle in July is to melt assumptions about what it means to be a “successful” author. Rather than write a manuscript all at once, I published weekly segments and invited my readers to help shape the story. The result has been every author’s dream come true: a deeply devoted fan base, complete artistic freedom, and a better story than I could have written on my own.
I’m using the innovative challenge-and-be-challenged community of Bolder to encourage all writers to follow their bliss and just publish the damned thing already…whatever that damned thing may be.
