Isn’t it funny the way that opportunities seem to be more likely to present themselves when you’re not looking for them? Like luck, love, buses.
My husband was chatting about me to a guy he’s been working with recently, a guy whose wife happens to be something of a voracious reader. She downloaded The Bottle Stopper, read it in just a few days, and then went on to buy the next book in the series; The Matching. She’s now looking forward to book three’s release.
In the same vein, I was talking to someone this morning, someone from my personal life and completely unrelated to my writing, and they had a proposal for me. A ghost writing opportunity. Completely out of the blue, but I’m really excited about it.
So the lesson is this: talk to people, be open to opportunities, and say yes, even when they take you by surprise.
