WHAT IS YOUR DEFINITION OF SUCCESS?

 

 

 

 

My definition of success in general, not really as a writer per say.

Stable income that allows me to take care of needs and necessities/emergencies, while traveling, writing, and some fun entertainment. Finding many moments of JOY in life that makes life worth living, inspires you to keep moving over the irritations, frustrations, loss, tragedies, and disappoints. A perk would be if I earned enough to live the writer’s life per say, but that is not the only way for me to feel successful, if I can meet the other. Always chasing hope, and riding it as long as I can hang on.

Having quality people in my life that inspire, encourage, and share who they are without tearing me down to do it.  Sharing the fun and joy, and laughing through the heartache professionalmeme-1and trials, so when I look back, I can say it has not been easy, but it has been fun.  It was a good life.

Being part of a community, family and friends where people matter to them, sharing goals and lives, lots of laughter, where fun is free, shared, and relaxed without over the top pressure.  There is nothing in the world like shared joviality and camaraderie.

To love and be loved, to laugh and make laugh, to see the world around me its wonder and its horror gaining inspiration in both, and growth in the living of it.  I want to live in hope knowing life will get better, even when it does not feel like it.

My writing. Success is knowing, that I have written a good story. A quality story. A story with character and plot. A fun and enjoyable read. The benefit is if it inspires, teaches something, or just make someone happy having read it, and want to read more. I am not

out to change the world, or be a J.K. Rowling, not saying I would not like it, just I do not necessarily aspire to it, nor expect it will happen. Finding people who like my stories and d474235d6d865349ab4fdaf443aacce1want to read them, not because they are the best prose in the world, but because they share something in common with me that they find in my stories. I strive to become a 8b5d2aa29d1f02d396c8b1aa5226995e 672f3214044efe567f6fd829666a17b3good storyteller or bard.  That would be a success. Making a living at it would be a benefit or reward.

  • I love this. I talk about success a lot. People think that it has to do with money, but it really doesn’t. I think success can be achieving a goal, doing something new that you wanted to, and having support in your endeavors. As writers, we always want to strive for the best and be successful financially, but just having positivity and love around me is success enough.
