You didn’t think I’d be back, did you?
Frankly, I had my own doubts. In fact, as I’m writing this at 11:00 on Sunday night, I’m still not sure.
It’s the first Monday of March. The month came in rather calmly but it’s been a chilly weekend.
Let’s face it, this whole winter has been rather lamb-ish.
But we’re just three weeks away from the official start of Spring. I’m ready.
What I wasn’t ready for, although there’s no reason I shouldn’t have been, was the sales pitch at the end of last week’s blog challenge.
“We’ll sell you our $2000 program for only $500.”
Sorry, I tapped out at the eleven bucks.
So, I’m not back here this morning having made a bazillion dollars off of my latest writing project.
But, I’m still writing.
And, I’m still getting pitches for new classes.
Classes I woudn’t likely take if I had the time and/or the money.
I really don’t mean to be unkind. I and I realize I’ve talked about this before.
There are just too many people out there who are so successful as “writers” because they make their money selling their success programs to other writers.
I’m not saying that their information isn’t helpful. It often is.
But there’s no magic formula to a successful career in writing.
I understand the need to format and to outline. And, I usually do those things.
(To be totally honest, this post is a little more free-flowing than that because it’s late when I’m writing and I’m sort of all over the place.).
It’s just that I refuse to become a “successful” “writer” using what amounts to a recipe for all of my posts.
If people can find and use this system and make their careers as writers, then bless them.
Really. Bless their hearts.
It’s just not for me.
Instead, it’s back to the drawing board, or the legal pad as the case may be.
In other news, I have a dynamite cast for my next project. We had our first read through last night and I’m already blown away.
