This week at The Debutante Ball, it’s “choose your own adventure”, so I thought I would take this opportunity to spotlight my fellow multi-published authors. What we do–create, destroy, inspire, and spark change–is no small feat. I’d say there’s some serious adventure to be had amid all of those sumptuous pages, and in the daily life of being a writer. So I asked them:
What is the most challenging aspect of being a published author?
“Finding the balance between writing what you desperately need to write and writing what is needed to be written to have a substantive career.” ––Donna Russo Morin, multi-award-winning novelist
“Believing in yourself when you don’t have a contract to drive you forward.”–Anne Easter Smith, award-winning novelist
“Dealing with publishing house changes, with editors coming and going and imprints being rearranged.”–Kris Waldherr, acclaimed novelist and award-winning artist
What about you, writers? What’s the most challenging part of being a writer–pubbed or not yet pubbed? Readers, what is your perception of a writer’s daily life?
