Uh-oh. Yep…that is a pretty inflammatory headline. But I stand behind it, and I don’t care who you are. If you want to call yourself a writer, but can’t take the time to READ…then you don’t belong in the business. Seriously. And for some, you have risen to a point where other people actually think YOUR opinion maters…they send you a request and you give some lame excuse?
I get it…you are busy. So is the rest of the world. Aren’t you asking other people to take the time to READ YOUR work? I am not saying that you have to say YES to every single request…but when is the last time that you did say yes at all? And if it is a person that you call “friend”, did you stop to consider what YOUR opinion might mean?
