Locus of Control

Via @BubbleCow, here is pub­lish­er Michael Hyatt’s take on the role of an author in the pub­lic­a­tion pro­cess:

This is why I believe would-be authors would do well to focus on those aspects of the pub­lish­ing pro­cess they can con­trol. That begins with writ­ing the best manu­script pos­sible. If the author doesn’t do that, then the size of the media plat­form is irrel­ev­ant.

It comes down to this again and again. Don’t com­plain about the wind, the rain, the slip­pery sur­face or the hom­icid­al car drivers if you went out with square wheels on your bike.
