I wrote on the MiG blog about how to make your writing presentation go smoothly. Check it out!
You see, yesterday, I presented at our Korea chapter's SCBWI meeting on using technology to help you network and promote yourself as a writer. We had such a great time sharing ideas.
But the most important thing I emphasized to the group is my old saying I like to tell my students:
Luck= preparation + opportunity.
In writer language, it means: go and write the most amazing, fantastic novel and then when you see an agent post on twitter or a blog that they are excepting submissions in the very genre that you write, you're ready to seize that opportunity.
So call luck, call it good fortune, call it whatever you like. But I like to call it Prepared for the Opportunity.
So if you had Writer's Luck, what would be your One Wish?
By the way, I thought the book above Just One Wish by Janette Rallison was fitting for this post. Excellent and halarious story dealing with tough issues. Recommended.
