The Importance Of The DRAFT Horse!

Journeying along your own Yellow Brick Road...

Striving for Success without Hard Work
is like trying to Harvest
where you have not Planted.

~ from DAVID BLY

Three-team dappled gray Percherons.

An individual who comes to me
has already put in an enormous amount of thought and hard work on his project. Most clients have been using draft
horses to pull the plow of creativity...
elegant, gallant creatures...
but now it is time to use the combine,
a multi-horsepowered machine,
to cut and thresh
the harvest of hard work.

Lay on, Macduffs of the Modern World! If you are a Writer, examine this web page. We Writers need to remember the things we will encounter along they way on our yellow brick road to publication.

Portrait Of A Lady: The Shire, a gentle giant among work horses

Your new Work Horse
is one of
a Different Color.

It is difficult beyond measure for a writer to find a publisher today, or even an agent whom the publishers now use as a front-line clearing house.

Today, the computer has put the scut work of writing into a manageable process for everyone ~ and everyone has a book in him. Competition is enormous.

To run the gauntlet of that competition, your writing must have not just polish, but a dynamic which makes it unique.

All writers, even those at the top, require editing... all. No exceptions.

Self-editing is the single most difficult and,
for some, the most vexing chore for the author.
Some rather well-known authors have been distressingly embarrassed by the glee with which their rivals pounced on published grammar errors.

Smooth, grammatical writing takes years for most folks to perfect, especially writing with that spark which holds the interest, which makes your reader want to know, "What's next?"

Beat the competition. Use the help of an expert to present your concepts, your ideas, your message to all you want to reach.
