Practice makes perfect
So of course I'm asking for your opinions. All comments are gladly received (please be gentle though) - what am I missing or what can I improve on? If you had a need for writing or design services would this website be enough for you to want to hire me.
I amaze myself with how far I've come in just 2 short years. In that time I've started this blog, written my first book and created some amazing work. Plus the ideas just keep coming. This is a true indication that if you want to be a writer then you have to just write and the more you write, the better you get. Much like anything, if you want it bad enough and you practice often enough then you can succeed.
It also helps when you have an spectacular support network who push you and encourage you and believe in you. My family and friends are the best there is.
I've mentioned often enough that I still need to work on promoting myself. Putting my work out there makes me step out of my comfort zone. But I write for others to read, I create for others to enjoy - I certainly don't do it for it to sit on my hard drive and gather dust. So stepping out of my comfort zone is essential to move forward.
What have you tried that has worked in selling your work or your ideas? What's the best advice that you've received which has assisted in helping you grow and improve?
