In your very deepest heart of hearts where you only allow a select few friends and family, what do you truly want? As a writer…
As an inspy writer, just what is it you want?
Is it your intention to bring Christ to those who don’t know Him?
As a writer in any genre…
Do you want to be a bestseller?
Is it your goal to make boatloads of money? (my youngest would say craploads, but I’m feeling particularly ladylike today—almost!)
Would you like to reach into someone’s life and bring entertainment?
These are all logical questions. At any other job in life, we have goals, we have reasons for knocking on a door saying “Let me in. I’ll be your best employee.”
Are you being your own best employee?
Have you outlined your goals? Organized your time? Do you treat this writing career as a career or as a hobby?
Only you can answer, but your responses may make the difference between being pubbed and not being pubbed.
Editors and agents will want to be able to envision your goals as clearly as you should. They want to know you’re in it for the right reasons and for the long haul.
