The Instant 'No'!




Something I see more and more as I waddle along this #indiepublishing journey is the instant reaction from other writers, other creatives, at the mere suggestion of trying something different, of changing their perspective, of implementing an easy improvement for huge gains and rewards.


"Embracing social media is good for a writer and could-?" NOPE NO NOT FOR ME NOT HAPPENING EVERRR!


"Why don't you try-?" NO!


"Have you ever thought of-?" NO!


"Maybe you could see if-?" NO!


The next time someone further along the road makes a suggestion, watch the first thought that comes into your head, the first thing that pops out of your mouth. Is it 'no'? Is it always, always 'no' and you always know better?


Time to take a breath, step back from instant dismissal. Writing, publishing, storytelling are deeply humbling processes. You need to embrace this, that others know more, and can advise and lift you up. Listen to the advice that does no harm, that perhaps makes you momentarily uncomfortable, advice where a rising tide lifts all ships. Otherwise you'll be screaming 'no' forever.
