September 1 question – How do you define success as a writer? Is it holding your book in your hand? Having a short story published? Making a certain amount of income from your writing?
Sorry gang, I’m a little under the weather today, but I didn’t want to miss IWSG day. So here I am for just a second:
To my way of thinking, we all have our own definition of success. My success might not be yours. I like what Pele, the Brazilian pro football player had to say about success:
“Success is no accident. It is hard work, perseverance, learning, studying, sacrifice and most of all, love of what you are doing or learning to do.”
I think that sums it up. Come up with a game plan for your writing life then get busy. Work toward those goals and dreams. Success will find you when you least expect it. 🙂
