Examining Your Writing Career

Examining Your Writing Career

Are you writing enough?

Are trying hard enough to become a better writer?

Are you reaching out to enough editors, trying to build a wider network?

Are you following through on your ideas or letting them evaporate over time?

Are you negotiating with editors for more money or learning how to do so?

Are your goals well defined or out there somewhere, too fuzzy to really see?

Are you pitching enough stories?

Are you networking enough or do you have the misguided view that talent is enough to get you to the top?

Are you kidding yourself with the idea of being a professional writer or do you really mean it?

Are you critical enough to grasp your strengths and weaknesses as a writer?

Are you happy with your writing?

Are you happy with your writing career?

Are you trying hard enough to be a writer?

Only YOU know all the answers to these.
