IWSG - Success


Insecure Writer's Support Group


Purpose of the IWSG: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds! Join us HERE!

The Question:

How do you define success as a writer? Is it holding your book in your hand? Having a short story published? Making a certain amount of income from your writing?

My Answer


All the above. Success is typing 'The End' at the finish of that first draft and then highlighting it bold after the final edit. It's also hitting publish button on Amazon or signing that contract for publication. Signing your first copy to a reader. Getting a five-star review. Winning a place in a popular anthology or placing in a writing contest.

This year, for me, it's finishing a series, and starting a new one.

Each incident has its own feeling of satisfaction, and they should all be celebrated!

  4. Everyone does have their own measure of success, and it's important that we don't judge ourselves by other writers' definitions. Congrats on starting a new series! That's exciting!
