Everybody and their aunt have become writers in this day and age. By no means am I bemoaning this fact--I think it is wonderful that more of us are shaping our thoughts, which are often too nebulous and evasive, and committing them to paper (or to the computer screen, as the case may be.) But I think that all of us, professional and amateur writers alike, are seeking to find the secret of success. We do it because we want our voice heard, which is becoming increasingly difficult because of the ensuing cacophony...
So here is a great article, The 5 Habits of Successful Authors. It invites all of us to engage more fully in finding an audience for our musings.

Thank you Sussan, it is my pleasure. If I find an interesting article, I feel I must share it with you.Delete
I think the formost job of literature is to entertain. That is one very important aspect of becoming successful. Whether your novels are literary or not, they absolutely must entertain.ReplyDelete
Yes! And they must be well written. But this is something that can not be taught.Delete
Yes, Catherine--we all need it!Delete
I received your book in the mail yesterday--so excited to read it after I finish the others I've started! I will confess that I read the first page, which I should not have done, because now it is calling to me!ReplyDelete
Exciting time to be a writer. I seem to have delved into both of my strongest creative passions--writing and photography after many years of having to put them aside, only to find that both worlds have exploded, morphed...become something they were not before. I am stimulated by the creative's cyber-challenges-but convinced that we will find our audiences by being true to our creative callings. Alas, I am an optimist.
Thanks Uvi--I thoroughly enjoy your posts...your amazing work.

Dear ChaiLicious, you made my day! I'd be curious to hear what you thought about the book once you are done with it...Delete
And you're so right! This is a unique moment in the history of literature and here we are to live it!
Thank you for writing to me.
