The Ups and Downs of My Wonderful Career.

As you know, I am currently working through all the old articles and major posts that were on the old site, updating them where appropriate, and adding them back onto the Article pages.

One of the most high-traffic articles on the old site was the first in what ended up being a series, quite without my realizing it.  I wrote “11 Things I Wish I’d Known About Full Time Writing When I First Started Writing Novels” way back in 2009, when I first got to write full time.

But as the article outlines, that joy didn’t last.

In 2013 I followed up on the article with “8 Things I Know About Part-Time Writing Now I’ve Written Full-Time“.

And in January this year I added a third to the series:  “13 Things I Know About Writing Full Time Now I’m Back to Full Time Again”   I tell you, that was one of the most satisfying blog posts I’ve ever written!

All three of these articles are listed on the Articles for Writers page, because that’s who they were originally intended for and writers will understand some of the more obscure aspects of writing, too.

But it occurs to me that readers may find it interesting to follow the cycles of my career to date and so I’m adding a note here, too.

In a year or so, I may update the series with a fourth article, about what I know once I’ve been writing full time fiction for longer than a year.  I’ll be as curious as you to see what I say about that one!

    How you find time to keep us in the loop and still knock out the number if books you do always amazes me.

    Changing subject, why did you include this Flicke site under your title – http://www.flickr.com/photos/desireedelgado/

      Hi Dina:

      My secret is that I sit with my butt in my chair and my fingers on the keyboard for over 10 hours a day, almost every day of the week, and usually at least 6 of them. The pages add up when you spend time at it!

      The flikr caption is an acknowledgement of copyright. People who upload their photos to Flikr can provide a range of copyright options, including free for personal use, free for commercial use, etc. A blog is considered commercial use, and often, the free-for-commercial-use rights come with a stipulation that the source must be acknowledged. Which is what happened in this case. Delgado is the photographer.

      Cheers,

      t.
