IWSG: September 1st 2021

 


An Insecure Writer's Support Group post is in the beginning of September this month. I'm writing this on my new computer which is more like a tablet. I haven’t got the hang of using my tablet so that's why I'm back on my phone, which is why I bought the tablet. 

"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?"

To me personally it's about getting paid doing what you love. Of course it's not really about the money for me, although it would be nice to get income from writing. Being able to see something that you did yourself, that you wrote yourself. So I guess having my ideas being brought to life instead of them always being in my head. I would love to see a physical copy of my book. I guess actually holding my book in my hand, yeah. I go into a store and I see all these writers in their books and I can’t help but want that for myself. I would like to see a book with my name on it that I created myself. 

I think if I could just get this one book out it would be better. I know adding school has delayed everything again but I’m planning on finishing up with the editing. I did see a few errors that I missed. Once I’m done with that I will be publishing it. This to me is another accomplishment. I do have other projects that I’m working on but if I could get my first fantasy series out there I think everything will be smoother for me. Again, I’ve been working on this book for years. I put in a lot of research and work in this book, it would be nice if they’ll pay off. 

Doing anything that you love doing for a living. Finding something that you love and making a career out of it, and I think that’s what I did. I would love to write down everything that inspires me and share it. It would also be great to inspire others, even if I touched the life of one person it would be worth it. 

Sorry if there are any strange errors. I couldn’t work on my tablet and I had to work back on my phone. I actually tried voice to text since I can't write on a phone too well because of my hand injuries.

So I finally have the blog upgrade. It took a long time only because I wasn't sure how I wanted to design it, so I worked with someone ...
