Countdown to Muse 2021: Small Victories by Candace McDuffie by Candace McDuffie

There was delight and enjoyment in securing my first book deal a year and a half back, I had a lot of stress and anxiety when it came to composing the introduction for it. 50 Rappers Who Changed The World is a vibrant, declarative declaration on how hip hop has actually transformed life as we understand it. Handpicking the 50 emcees featured– as well as the 20 honorable mentions– was fairly simple compared to penning an introduction.

The book composing procedure was off to a painstaking start; as I ached over every word, I fretted about completion item refraining from doing the genre justice. I had to take a moment to keep in mind and regroup why I was commissioned to do this work. I was lucky sufficient to visit my editor in London in December 2019 and reveal them the draft for my intro. However, the caution was I had no words to show her.

On a train flight to their workplace, I brought my note pad with me as a final effort to crank out the introduction. I finally realized that when I stopped putting so much pressure on myself, the words would effortlessly stream. If I might hook the reader with an extraordinary opening line, whatever else would fall into place:.

How do you encapsulate the intentionality, persuasiveness, and overall power of rap in just a few brief paragraphs? In an effort to inform the masses, do you thin down its strength so its easier to consume? Do you compose the intro for yourself not modifying it for readers or is it the other way around?.

We all know what the “big” triumphes are (landing an agent, snagging a book deal, or getting a fancy award), but this year we aim to celebrate the similarly important, tiny, and typically unseen success of our composing lives. In anticipation of the conference, weve asked Muse 2021 presenting authors to explain one small success theyve had as a writer that no one understands about.
