Mistake Number 4

I think it's safe to say I agree with this one--miracles are pretty unusual in the fiction writing business. Bickham says, "The writing of fiction--except in the case of that very rare genius--is a difficult job. It involves the interactive working of dozens of specific, hard-won techniques. It may become art, but only by first being consummate craft." Amen.

4. Don't Expect Miracles
