Are you Ready for Publication?

I’m still recovering from our first venture into Chuckie Cheese over the weekend (a late birthday present for our twins who turned six) so I don’t have the energy for a post today.

Instead, click here to see a flow chart called How to Get Published. It’s hilarious!

    • PK,

      We went at the whole visit in a very smart way. We were at the door less than half an hour after they opened (9am) on a day when most kids in the area had school. (My kids had it off for yet another budget shortfall day).

      That way we didn’t have to fight the crush of kids, or listen to them whine for pizza. We were nearly the only ones there which made it nice. I think there was about six other kids total. Another good thing was the employees were testing lots of the games to see if they worked, and after they did they would just leave the string of tickets hanging out for anyone to grab.

      We had a blast!

      Thanks for visiting,


  1. Nothing like a good flow chart to help you figure out what the heck you’re doing wrong (or right)! Thanks for the link.

  2. I was feeling sorry for you until I read your reply to PK. Sounds like you planned a very sensible approach to the Chuck E Cheese experience. Happy Birthday to your twins.

    I saw that flow chart earlier and giggled enough to go back and check it out again. Naturally, all things lead to… keep writing.

    • Carol,

      I’m a woman with a plan when it comes to going on outings with my twins. I learned early on to learn the lay of the land and figure out when peak times are so we don’t go then 🙂

      I’m glad you enjoyed the flow chart!


  3. The flow chart certainly gives everyone a quick glimpse at how confusing the writing world can be. We stumble, we fall, we get back up and continue on. At any point during our journey, disaster or triump can stike.

  4. Diane,

    I completely agree! The path to publication is fraught with pitfalls, sidetracks, and distractions and Kate’s chart describes them perfectly.

    Glad you enjoyed the link.


  5. You were so right, Christi. The chart was hilarious! And as I’ve always been told – just keep writing.


    • T.,

      I’m glad you enjoyed it! I saw that chart a while back and knew I had to put up a link…the day after Chuck E. Cheese proved perfect!
