    I like your definition of a working writer 🙂 I’m not always good at doing all the things you’ve listed, but I do try!

    You have lots more focus than me. I have the hardest time staying on track of one thing, much less all the things you manage to do!

    Can’t argue. You’ve sure got a handle on writing. Busy. Busy.

      Sometimes too busy, but I love it.

    Networking is huge, and you’re a maven in that department.

      LOL, thank you, and so are you Lee. I believe in networking, besides it’s a lot of fun and there is a lot of reward that has nothing to do with money.

    Networking can be just as important. That leads to more opportunities to sell your work.

      Thank you. I was starting to feel hopeless about my life situation and my writing. Now I am excited again.

    Interesting definition of a working writer! I am not one and never will be, but you’re far on your way.

      Working writer really has many definitions. Earning is not necessarily it, but for me it was a great need to earn and to be able to do it writing is exciting.

    I like your definition of working writing. It’s not about money.

      No, it is not about money. I got lucky that I have managed to start earning through writing. For me it is only the working part that is about earning—I have been a serious writer since my teens.

    I like your comment about a working writer helping other writers. YES! I love spending time plotting, critiquing, playing psychoanalyst with my fellow writers, especially those in my critique group. In helping others form their ideas, I’ve often found my own inspiration and excitement for the craft. Talking about writing fuels excitement about writing which is why I adore IWSG!

      I agree. It is not the money because I only needed that for survival the passion and love is the sharing and interactions and making shit up for fun. I also adore IWSG!

    I don’t think making money at writing defines you as a working writer. I think it’s more about a commitment to writing regularly and working toward being published some way.

      I absolutely agree. I was defining WORKING for myself as earning any money. I have been at poverty level since lost job and time passed, as in years over months, has been devastating. I was feeling hopeless, so working means I am earning money doing the thing I love writing.

      It is the term “working”, and NOT Writer that I was defining. I have been a writer since I was in my teens, a serious writer.
