I believe the game has changed.
Being a writer in the 21st Century is no longer about waiting to be picked. We now have unprecedented access to our readers and more control then ever over how we are regarded and received in the marketplace. This is empowering! Fight any overwhelm or insecurity you might feel with action and determination.
Writing is your business, and you are a professional. Take advantage of the opportunity to create and hone your image, your writing and your career. Don’t underestimate your ability to learn, to adapt and to do great things.
