IWSG October 7th Question:

When you think of the term working writer, what does that look like to you? What do you think it is supposed to look like? Do you see yourself as a working writer or aspiring or hobbyist, and if latter two, what does that look like?

MY ANSWER:
To me a working writer is writer with several income streams, books, short stories, coaching and/or courses, blogging, working for or with other writers, anything that earns an income for them in the writing and publishing industry. The more income streams the better. It is kind of like not putting all your eggs in one basket.

Actually, a working writing does not always necessarily earn an income, sometimes the payoff is networking, contacts, and helping others succeed.

I am working on my novel, series projects, and short stories. I am learning all I can about marketing, launching, and promoting books. I love writing craft books, so always eager to read what is available and find out about new ideas or old ideas re-imagined.

Writers and Readers,

The Insecure Writer’s Support Group Book Club is for writers to read/learn about the writing craft. We will swap back and forth between craft books and fiction books that demonstrate aspects of storytelling.

We will read one book every two months.

There will be polls, free-gifts, and a lot of Discussion Day fun.
