Engaging in a writing career, like all great stories, is about transformation. We are writers in the 21st Century, taking our place alongside other authors on the world stage. Because that’s what the new century and its technology has brought: endless opportunities to publish. We’re all on the world stage. And it’s a crowded and busy one.
Once our work is published anywhere, it’s up for good. Forget searching for validation (although reviews are very nice indeed.) We need to enjoy the satisfaction of publishing, or else why are we spending all this time and desire? Why are we not organizing our wardrobes or building entertainment shelving instead?
I’ll tell you why. Because it’s the greatest feeling in the world to wake up knowing that we’re going to do work we love today.
I hope you’ll have another brilliant writing week. Cheers Mel.
