Hear ye, Hear ye, I have met a King.Yes, I am name-dropping and I am pretty proud of it. I met King Henry VIII. How, you ask? Well, I was strolling along a path through the merry village of Revel Grove and suddenly, there he was. The King in all his glory.
My writing renaissance.
Successful businesses are similar to successful writing.
- Love what you do -- Loving what you do will help you focus on your creations rather than on creating the fortune you imagine you will make. The first person who held a “Renaissance Fair” was reportedly a teacher who was doing something for her class; not attempting to make a profit.
- Keep the attention of the customer -- Bored festival attendees will not return. Bored readers close the book. Your writing must be mesmerizing. Or at least interesting.
- Practice, practice, and practice -– Practice makes closer to perfect. Don’t expect perfection in the beginning. But continue to work toward that goal.
- Don’t hide; advertise –- As frightening as it is in the beginning, you must show your writing to others. Blogs, social media, and word of mouth of your friends, if you don’t advertise your writing, no one will be able to read it.
- Know your customer -- Renaissance festival fans expect horses, knights, Kings and Queens. If your readers want fairy tales and unicorns, you can’t give them Norman Bates and Jason.
