Note to Unpublished Authors: Not much really changes. While having a published book is statistically good. One book doesn’t mean that there will be a second one. I have submitted several manuscripts since Un-Brella and they have all be turned down. “We like your artwork and the way you think, we just don’t think you have a story . . . yet”
So here is a little advice to myself: Pay attention if the same comments keep coming up. It is time for me to spend time refining the “art” of storytelling.
I will start by reading and enjoying the process of a story. Paying attention and enjoying the small events and why they are there.
