Insecure Writer's Support Group
I don't know about you, but sometimes I feel pretty knowledgeable. People ask me questions. I know the answers or how to tell them to find the answers. But then you get this one person, they're intelligent and well connected and a lot older than you. They want your advice and help. You try for several months to help them. Then they don't take your advice or only take part of it. They do their own thing....Then they come back and want more advice and you don't know how to help them.
I think I was probably born a teacher. I've always liked helping people. But I'm at the point of frustration. I do want to help this person, I just don't know how.
(Light bulb moment) Maybe I tell him. I don't think I can help you with your current works. Perhaps if you write a new manuscript, I can help you with editing and your query letter, because that's what I do best.
Have you ever had a situation like this? It doesn't have to be a writing situation either...
What did you do?
Amazon? Guess what? I have an article in it.
If you didn't see my last post and would like to win a copy of Learning to Read is a Ball. Please hop over and make a comment.
