This is the first of my blog challenge posts. I chose this topic because I believe that as writers as long as we get our attitude down pat we’ll be headed for success. So, what kind of attitude should a writer have?
1. Have a daily habit. It doesn’t matter what you write about, you should write daily. It could be working on your novel, writing articles to submit to magazines or article directories, critiquing work from your critique group, or posting to your blog. Whatever it is, writing daily will help you hone your skills as a writer and help you get noticed by those who can advance your writing career.
2. Listening to the advice of others. If your attitude is that you know it all and you don’t need to listen to those who have been in the business longer than you, then you could be doomed to failure.
3. Believe in yourself. You may be a novice, but you need to believe in yourself. Believe that you have what it takes to succeed as a writer. Stop putting yourself down. Work at your craft with patience and diligence and you will succeed.
So there you have it. With this type of attitude you can join the ranks of great writers, who, most of them will tell you they still maintain this attitude even though they are now famous. Think about it.
