Every once in a while, I get the opportunity to participate in something that helps me immeasurably. Last Saturday, I got to attend a meeting of the Panhandle Professional Writers (PPW for short). The PPW has been around in my area for ages and is one of the oldest writer's groups active in the US. Kinda of a neat feat in my opinion, but I digress.
PPW often sponsors seminars for writers, retreats, contests, and various other writer-ly endeavors. This Saturday was no exception. Bethany Claire came in to speak about indie authors, and what it takes to make a dream like ours a reality.
To say that I was inspired by the talk, and planning out my future goals as a writer, is a vast understatement. I left the lecture feeling like writing full time is something that I can do, and that I could ultimately make a career out of. I don't mean the whole J.K. Rowling kind of success, but making my writing something I can actually do as a career. That's the best feeling I've had writing related in a long, long, long time. Sometimes you just have to share that happy, I can do this feeling, ya know?
