I am posting again for the Insecure Writer's Support Group. Here's a link if you are interested in learning more about it.
Optional Question - What are your ultimate writing goals, and have they changed over time (if at all)?
My writing goals is to eventually become a published and established writer so I can officially say writing is my career, one of my careers. I find enjoyment in creating. So it would be nice to get paid doing something I love doing. I'm closer to this goal now than ever because I've got my first book finished. All I have to do is polish it, and other stuff.
Looking back at when I first started writing, I don't think nothing has changed, because that's always been my ultimate writing goal. Although now, I've grown to be a soul who appreciates simplicity. I wish to find that special place in the world where I can write in peace and quiet, and with very beautiful scenery. That is why I considered moving to Canada, Germany or a smaller area in the U.K. I'm leaning towards Germany. Or a country like Switzerland with beautiful scenery to write.
Like I said, after a few years, I will be finally ready for publication. I want to publish outside of the United States since I will be moving out of the country. My main interest would be Japan because I have been seeking employment and career opportunities there related to writing. I am open to publish in any other country though.
Since the first three days of July also is the anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, I have been inspired to make it a goal to finish the WIPs that's related to the American Civil War, and also the project related to the Declaration of Independence. Every year, I don't celebrate the 4th of July like most. Instead, I read over the Constitution and learn more about the Revolutionary War and stuff. It has inspired me to write about these topics as well.
