The Story Contract

I [insert name], solemnly swear to be faithful to my story [insert working title]. I promise to see it through to completion, no matter how many other ideas come along to tempt me.

I vow to remember that at one point this story thrilled me and gave me that wonderful feeling of potential. If I am feeling in any way jaded, I shall do my best to work through the road blocks and rediscover the passion I had for this piece in the early days.

Finally, I promise to help this work be born into the world by whatever means appropriate. If that means seeking an agent for it, I will. If that means self-publishing it, I will. If this story simply wants to retire to my cupboard, I will make that happen too.
