A Realistic Path to Becoming a “Successful Writer”

I seem to have found a theme lately, and that theme encompasses what it takes to be a successful writer.

One thing we often forget, as readers as much as writers, is that “success” as determined by society is, for the most part, unattainable. It’s lofty and unrealistic and based on the view that success is only achieved when we become a household name.

If you view success as measured by fame or fortune or being asked for autographs, the odds are you’re going to be disappointed. But if you look at success through different lenses, achieving success as a writer (or any other career or life choice, for that matter) is much more attainable than you realize.
