Mistakes Greeting Card Writers Make Part 1

Before submitting verse to card publishers, evaluate your work and see if you are making these mistakes:

1. Forgetting That A Card Is A Relationship

A common problem writers have with card verse, is ignoring the fact that a card is a personal message between two individuals. Consider the following verse: “If you have anger in your heart, your will not find happiness.” Standing alone, this quote has an important message that is true, but what happens when you put this on a greeting card? What do the sender and receiver think? If you bought this card, who would you send it to? Someone who is angry? And if you were the recipient, you might feel that someone is trying to lecture you on how to avoid being a angry person.
