Today we’ll talk about Yarn and you know I don’t mean knitting, unless it’s with the intention of tying story threads together. According to dictionary.com, among other things, a yarn is a long story full of adventure and/or incredible happenings.
After we write our story, edit and then edit some more, most of us look for publishers to buy our work. Others find editors, graphic designers and marketing experts to help produce a market-worthy book. By now you know that a blog tour is one of the most cost-effective ways to give your book some exposure. However, that’s where the journey begins.
Writers impact our lives through their love of the written word, so even while birthing and showing off a book, a dedicated writer has things going on in the background. Spinning the next yarn is chief among these activities.
One book does not a writing career make.
In every artistic endeavour, I’m sure you can think of a one-hit wonder. I’m also sure you don’t want to be that artist. So, while you have your newest baby on tour, never forget that a writer’s calling is to craft compelling stories or in informal terms, spin a yarn. The more stories you write, the more material you’ll have to hit the road with on tour.
Enough said. Hit me with your comments.
