2 Day Blog Takeover continues with a guest post Knock and the Door Opens
by Stefanie August
Today was one of those days where I got up early, worked on some writing needs, pitched some agents and low and behold – two opportunities jumped out at me – one for free videos promoting two of my books and another that vetted me as a serious writer and wants to “audition” me via sample for their company – near where I reside I might add.
The world is full of those things we desire if we take time to “mine” them – meaning that as a professional in any endeavor YOU have to create an agenda for seeking them.
So “knock” when an opportunity presents itself! It might be the very door to the next creative experience you are seeking!
