This is so true. In the past, when I was just getting started as a freelancer, I create a couple of jobs out of thin air. It’s not as hard as you might think – but it does require you to “see” the place where your talents and interests and someone’s needs converge. As you face the week or days ahead, what door of opportunity can you create for yourself?
There are days when being an author means you just have to stop writing and create in another medium. This is one of those days.
Shopping at my local produce market I saw a beautiful display of pumpkins large and small. iPhone at the ready I snapped this photo then had fun this morning tinkering with it to create something slightly different from the original.
Here’s the deal: If you want to write for a living, find more things than words that feed your soul. Otherwise you’re going to starve to death.
You know I’m a non-fiction author, but in a few weeks I’m going to try my hand at taking the #NANOWRIMO challenge; writing a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. Will you be joining me? If not, the question I have as you move into the following days and weeks – what in your writing is not as it seems?
Doesn’t matter if you write fiction or non-fiction. As a writer you have the ability to live twice; once as “you”, once as anything or anyone you can imagine. As you prepare for the following days and weeks, what “others” will you create?
