2. “Are you more invested in the business of publishing than the practice of writing?”
Concentrate on writing first. Publishing, and all the gossip and who’s-who that it involves, should never distract you from producing the best work possible.
3. “Is your writing ready to be submitted? Will you stand behind your work not only today, but well into the future?”
Many writers are embarrassed by their early work.
Don’t be in a rush to publish. Wait a while before submitting your newest piece. Revise the thing until it’s something you’re proud of.
