Do you want to make your dream of becoming a writer a reality?
Did you say you want to be a writer? Well, don’t just want to be a writer, be a writer. What are you waiting for? The contract that’s going to automatically change your life. The thing that’s going to make you a great writer? I have news for you, don’t just wish. Put things in action, make it happen. So you want to be a writer, huh. How much have you written? How many hours a day do you dedicate to perfecting your craft. To be good at something, you must practice it on a daily basis. You must know your craft to be good at your craft. If you say you want to be a writer then you must live it to become it.
And when you have enough work to feel proud and confident about, take it out into the world. Send it to as many publishers and editors and don’t take “No” for an answer. I hear people say, “Oh, there is so much competition out there”, yes , there is. So, that’s why you have to be good at what you do. Be part of that competition. But aside from perfecting your craft and being a talented writer, you must also know how to play the business part of it. The business part is what’s going to get you published and paid. That means not giving up. Believing in your work and submitting it to as many editors and publishers as possible. And when they say no review it, make any changes if necessary and resubmit. Don’t get discouraged follow your dream. Don’t just dream it live it. Be a writer, if that’s what you wish.
