NaNoWriMo Tip #1: Treat writing as if it’s your career.

My first tip: Treat writing as a career.

Why? Because those of us who call ourselves writers don't see it as a hobby.

It is how we spend the bulk of our work day.

It is our primary source of income.

It is a way of life.

As such, the term “avocation” fits it well. But so does the word “vocation.”

That's because writing is also our chosen career.

It can be yours, too — if you choose to make it such.

Fate (zeitgeist, fairy dust, whatever) has a lot to do with any writer's success. But so does determination. That thing called inspiration happens to everyone–but not everyone puts in the hard work to take a high concept and develop it into a full-length story that plays out page after page, and keeps readers intrigued until the very last sentence.

I truly believe that those of us who take the time and make the effort can be published.

I believe that person is YOU.
