It Doesn’t Have To Be Perfect

Writers (including myself), editors, publishers, agents, and teachers advise authors to produce a short story, poem, or novel that is squeaky clean before submitting it to be read by anyone. However, they will be the first to admit that the perfection they recommend may be overlooked if the story line is attractive or appealing.

My advice to any beginning author or seasoned one is to strive to be human in your story telling. After all, God created humans, and, in that sense, we are perfect, because God is perfect.
