**Wishing everyone a Happy and Safe 4th of July**
What are you doing for Independence Day?
Join Alex J. Cavanaugh and a multitude of writer's in this monthly hop to help support one another!
Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance. It’s a safe haven for insecure writers of all kinds!
July 3 question - What are your ultimate writing goals, and how have they changed over time (if at all)?
In the beginning, I was antsy. Because, I'd seen many indie authors publishing several books a year. And I couldn't write fast enough or good enough for that to happen.
What's changed: I'm a little less neurotic, and not as antsy. I've realized I'm not in a competition, a race to publish as many books as I can. Everyday, or when I find the time to put words to my ms, I want to produce a good story. A story that will entertain readers.
I try very hard to hone my craft by reading, and reading differing genres. I learn something new each day, and ultimately, I'd like to read my own writing and smile and say to myself ~ that's good!
At the present time: My goal is too settle down and try very hard to write 1k a day.
And, if at all possible, I'd like to publish at least one book a year. God Willing.
