I'm posting this poll because I was curious. As a community, we have writers ranging from published authors to newbies, and people who would like to do this professionally alongside folks who write in private, for themselves, with no intention of ever submitting their work to an editor -- or, in some cases, with no intention of showing anyone else, ever. So, if you're interested, tell us where you'd like to go with your writing. What are your ultimate writing goals, as of right now? (If you had different plans before and have changed them for whatever reason, put the most current version in the poll.) Rough categories: Private writing (not for anyone else to read), Personal writing (shared with friends and family, not for publication), Community writing (letters and essays in newspapers or newsletters), Casual writing for publication (you'd like to be published now and then, but it's no big deal), Semi-pro (you'd like to have a non-writing career and be published regularly on the side), Pro writer (you'd like to write full-time and make most of your income from your work), Award-winning writer (you'd like to make the bestseller list or win some serious recognition within your genre). For example, a University Professor would be a "Semi-pro" because they're both teaching and publishing their findings. Someone who writes editorials for the paper would do "Community writing." Someone who wants to make it big would be "Pro writer" or "Award-winning writer."
