When everything is news to you, remember that you're news to everything. It is a wide-eyed exchange of utter, plain wonder.
The advice I would give. Writing what we’re good at is the best option, because genuine writing always wins in the end. Useful and practical answer for every writer.
Dear Publishing Advisors,
What genre of writing is the easiest to get published? I want to get published soon, but do not have a ton of time to write/revise. Rather than spending my time on a genre that is more cut-throat, I’d rather invest my time more wisely. Recommendations?
