Welcome to another monthly adventure in the Insecure Writer's Support Group blog run! Join writers from all over as we look at the writing world!
Today we were presented with a very timely question-- What are your ultimate writing goals and have they changed over time?
I've been writing for a very, very, VERY long time. And the goal in the beginning was just to finish a book. Then it became get the book out there on the agent circuit. Then start a new book, and another, and another.
My ultimate goal however was first and foremost--to have total strangers read my work and like it. Deep in my heart, it was also to make enough money at it that I could quit the day job and write full time.
Neither of those have changed, really.
I still want to get my books into new hands, and I'm thrilled when I see sales in other countries (or anywhere ;)). Even already doing that hasn't changed that goal.
And I would love to be able to leave my day job and write full time. I love days when I can just stay immersed in my worlds. Someday, I hope to make that one a reality as well.
So the situations change over the years--but the goal of writing enjoyable books is still alive and well.
Happy IWSG day!
