How to be Successful
I'd like to earn enough money from my books to pay for my kids' tuition at their private school. Well, that too takes discipline. Discipline to write consistently, to read voraciously, to learn all I can about the industry, to submit to critique groups, to query agents, to meet editors at conferences, to network with other writers and potential readers, to build a "tribe" of followers, to develop unique ideas, to promote my work, and to do it all over and over on a daily basis.
How much do I want to succeed? It'll show up in how disciplined I become.
What about you? Where do you want to be successful? What simple disciplines done daily will get you there?
