Day 31 of the Writer Mama Every-Day-In-May-Book Giveaway.
Today’s question: Today is the last day of the giveaway, so let’s a big question. What would it take for you to become a best selling author? Where are you now? What are the steps you would need to take to get there? Do you want to get there? Why or why not?
My response: I guess what it would take is a best-selling idea. 🙂 At this point in my writing life, my goal is simply to express myself to the best of my ability, to be part of a writing community, and to develop my craft. I have been extremely fortunate to have been able to tap into a number of fine online poetry and haiku communities, including Poetic Asides, ReadWritePoem, Big Tent Poetry, NaHaiWriMo, the Haiku Society of America, Haiku Oregon, and The Haiku Foundation. Through daily writing prompts and feedback, what started out as a solitary activity has turned into writing in community with talented poets/haijin from around the world. I recently served on a scholarship committee, where we asked high school seniors where they saw themselves in four years. When I ask that question of myself, a propos my writing goals, I can only say: “… still writing.”
