This month's question is: 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?
For me it'd be making income from my writing. I write because I enjoy it and I publish because I think people will enjoy the stories, but saying I paid the internet bill with my writing would be cool. Maybe one day that will happen. That's why I have yet to give up. If I stop then I'm only ensuring it never happens. I keep writing then there's always hope.
Last month, I gushed a bit about how great this group was. Then shilled for help for my next release. I cringed a bit, but IWSG is a great way to get help with your latest book release. Well, this month, I have another thing to shill. It's not a book, though.
I've been writing and publishing for about ten years now. Over that time, there have been tips and tricks I have figured out or learned. It's from all over the web. Recently, I went through the notes I've taken about those tips and tricks. I complied them into PDFs and Templates for future reference. I figured if they helped me then maybe someone else will find them useful.
