Here's the most eye-opening thing I've learned since venturing down the yellow-brick road of publication...
Really. This is important. I promise.
Here goes: The people who will help you the most or perhaps even teach you the most in your quest to become published may very well be the people you least expected. It might be someone you met on a blog, in a writer's forum, an editor who fell in love with your book in a slush pile. They could become your best cheerleaders and teachers. That's why I think it's important to be open to anything. And don't forget to pay it forward because karma is a beautiful thing.
Writers: What expectations have you had that have been blown out of the water?
