We want to be done. We want to share our story with the world. Especially when we’re new at this, getting our feet wet and all that, we want to announce our passions to the world and share our stories.
We risk rushing things when we let ourselves become overwhelmed by our enthusiasm. Believe me, I know. I’ve done it. Many times. You’d think I’d learn, and I do, but then…
Telling a great story takes time. It takes time and energy and devotion and commitment and a whole lot of other things. I don’t much care for list posts, myself, so I’m going to stop right now. It takes a lot to tell a great story. We’ll leave it at that.
Except I can’t leave it at that. The marketer in me wants to tell you that your readers deserve that great story. The writer in me wants to tell you that your story deserves to be a great story. Don’t sell you or your story or your readers short by easing up on that long haul.
Pull the load. Do the work. Your readers will thank you. Your story would too if it could.
