Y IS FOR YES
Continuing with the Author ABCs...
The most important word an author needs to sling around is YES.
When an agent says she needs a proposal for a sequel: YES
When an editor says she needs the revisions by next Monday, and it's late Friday afternoon, and you were planning to go on an overnight date with your husband: YES
When a library wants to book your program, but doesn't have the funding: YES
When a striving writer asks you to read their first draft, and you don't really have time, but you remember being a striving writer... heck, you still ARE a striving writer: YES
When a brand new book blogger requests an interview: YES
Of course there are times when the answer needs to be "no," but choose wisely, my friends. You will get much farther in this writing business with YES.
