your bill of writes

Hello faithful readers! It’s been a world-wind, crazy summer at our house and no signs of slowing down yet! In lieu of my regular Tuesday post, please enjoy this wonderful blog by my dear friend Vicky Lorencen! I’m sure you’ll want this writer Bill of Rights handy whenever you sit down to work!

Welcome to Frog on a Dime

In the spirit of Independence Day, I present to you [cue the fife and drum please] . . .

A Writer’s Bill of Rights

You have the right to observe, but not follow trends.

You have the right to seek a second opinion.

You have the right to ask, “What if?”

You have the right to laugh at your own writing. Hey, if you’re funny, you’re funny.

You have the right to leave your beloved critique group if it’s no longer serving its purpose.

You have the right to say no when a friend of a friend asks for feedback on her 1,000-word non-fiction picture book about the history of toe jam.

You have the right not to feel guilty if someone asks for your honest opinion and doesn’t like your response (assuming you delivered the news graciously).

You have the right to try a new genre.
