When You Don’t Follow Up with Agents, Editors or Readers

by Marla Beck

in brilliant writing career

Not long ago, I met a writer who desperately wanted cut through the clutter of her busy schedule and inner resistance so she could finally focus on writing.

She had a book to finish.

Her book was personally meaningful and commercially viable.  Not only was its concept well-developed and the book half-written, she’d successfully lined up people who wanted to help her navigate the book world and shop her manuscript around, once she’d edited and finished it!

So much promise.  So much potential.

How many times have you not followed through when writing doors started to open for you?

Did you fail to pitch that agent you met at a conference?  Skip following up after winning a contest or receiving a promising rejection letter?

Did you struggle with a story idea so long your concept was no longer timely?

How many times have you said NO when the Universe gave you a nudge in the right direction?  Or handed you a pretty solid writing YES?

  • If you’ve got writing talent…

  • If you’ve got an unfinished story idea, pitch or book laying around…

  • If you’ve got a good publishing lead or two, or simply a good and eager beta reader lined up to read your work….

If you’ve got writing promise but not much to show for it…

…you are allowing yourself to play a dangerous game.

Before you know it, your eager editor/agent/beta reader will lose enthusiasm for your work.

Before you know it, you’ll find yourself facing a big milestone birthday with nothing writerly to show for it.

Daily, you’ll either tell yourself “the book doesn’t really matter,” or berate yourself for being lazy and not managing to get it done.

Writing in the midst of a busy life and career is not easy.  I get it!  But with the right guidance, tools and framework, you can reclaim the time, energy, confidence and clarity you need to focus in on your unfinished project, finish it and pitch it with confidence.
