Writing, they say, is a vocation, like being a doctor or a nurse - except you don't automatically get paid to write - and are perhaps some kind of freak if you expect it.

I don't agree.

Writing is a skill and a craft like any other. You can make clay pots or weave blankets and people wouldn't dream of expecting not to pay for them. 

Why should a writer give away novels, books, short stories and articles? Even poems?

Writers should be paid to write - simple as that.

THIS WEEK'S ARTICLE:

The Seven Rules of Success


Rob Parnell

How do you remain happy?

How do you get what you want?

Success is often a perception. You either believe you have it or more often you hate yourself for feeling like a failure.

Here are the Easy Way to Write seven rules to live by if you truly want to feel good about yourself - and achieve your most cherished goals and dreams.

1. You are the expert on you.

You don't need anyone to tell you what you're like or what your are capable of. 

Nobody else knows you as well as you do. 

Therefore, you are the only person who can and should decide what is right for you.

No-one else's opinion matters.

2. You are not broken; you do not need to be 'fixed'.

This may come as a shock to your friends and family - who probably never tire of listing your faults and reminding you of your failures!

You have an essential right to be exactly who you are, and decide what you want to do with your life. 

You must embrace all of the qualities you possess, good and bad. 

It is your job to enhance those qualities and use them to your and everyone else's advantage - it's what makes your way unique.

3. You already have all the resources you need to succeed.

Even if you don't have the necessary skills required, you know how you can get them. 

You also 'know' what you have to do to acquire them. 

What matters is that you understand this about yourself. 

There is nothing that you cannot achieve if you are sufficiently motivated.

4. You can achieve anything if you break down a task into small enough chunks.

As a writer, you'll be aware of this. 

Nobody writes a big book all in one go. 

You have to break it down, building it one word at a time if necessary. 

That's how all great people achieve anything - consistent, even if sometimes only minimal action over the long haul.

5. If what you're doing isn't working, you must do something else.

Only a fool keeps banging their head against a brick wall when it's clear they're not knocking the thing down. 

A wise person, like yourself, will change tack and try a different method for bringing down the wall - or simply climb over or around it.

6.
There is no such thing as failure, only feedback.

Successful people are not lucky. 

They just get used to failing more than most. 

That's how it works. 

You try lots of things, lots of new ventures and projects. 

Some work out, some don't. 

It's a fact of life. 

You just need to go with the ones that do work - for you.

7. You are creating your future NOW!

Everything you are doing in the moment is creating an inevitable future. 

If you want to be successful in the future, you must start behaving like a successful person now, this minute, and make the kinds of decisions about your time and efforts that will bring about the future you want.

Okay? 

So now you know the Easy Way to Write seven rules of success!

Now you can go out and get what you want!

And be a happy chappy / chappess!

Keep writing!
