There is so much information out there for writers, and it's often conflicting. I want to be the best writer I can be, want to be successful at it and get agented and published. So I read blogs about writing and publishing and follow agents on Twitter. I write this blog to share and network with other writers. I take part in blogfests. Oh, and every now and then I actually write too.
With all these things out there to help me be the best I can be, telling me what I need to do to reach my goal, surely it shouldn't be so hard.
But it is. Knowledge can be a dangerous thing. Too much of it can flummox you, make you like a deer in headlights, unable to move forward or back away. And that's how I feel at the moment. Buried in information that's supposed to help me, but is really just keeping me from being able to move forward.
Do you ever get overwhelmed by the wealth of resources available to you? How to you push through it?
