My idea of success keeps changing! I've gone through most on my list below but every time I acheive one goal I NEED to create another!
At what point would you say "Yep! I've done it - that's what I call success! Now I can take a break and enjoy all my hard work and 'success'.
For many it seems to be at the point of publishing even if they make no sales.
For others it's when they make a sale from a person not related to them in any way.
For others still, when they start making good regular daily sales.
Or does success mean making your living from writing? Your book becoming a bestseller? Your name in lights?
Where does your 'success' counter stop?
