Formula for Failure

"I cannot give you the formula for success, but I can give you the formula for failure--which is: Try to please everybody."

~Herbert Bayard Swope~

A good one as a precursor of my next entry - RWA EMERALD Award.

Write the story of your heart, polish it based on the consensus feedback you get from contests but not just because Judge A said "this" and Judge B said "that" an Judge C said "something different".

The quote says it all - you can't please everybody - and if you try, you'll wreck a good story.
