I’ve been writing this blog on-and-off for a couple of years now. So yesterday I decided to take a look at how many subscribers I have. It had been at least 6-8 months since I looked last. I was shocked to learn that I have 576 subscribers signed up to read my stuff. No, it’s not a million. But it’s a substantial amount considering I was expecting maybe twenty.
That number strikes me funny because since I’ve started my current job a year and a half ago, I have barely have had time to write. So I haven’t posted much on my blog in the last year and I wanted to change that.
Then a couple of weeks ago I found this article called 52 Things Ideas for Writers for 2015 by Brooke Warner. Most of these are ideas are pretty simple, others may take longer. Either way, if you implemented half of these ideas, you’d be on your way to your first book deal in no time.
This leads me to what I tell people (and myself) all the time when they say they want to be a writer. I say, “If you want to be a writer, then you need to write, preferably every day.” And if you want to be a professional writer, you need to start treating your writing like a profession, which means doing things on this list every day to get your writing out there.
So now I’m taking my own advice right now…here’s a link to the article. Click here.
