Words on Wednesday – Share Your Writing Success

Welcome to Words on Wednesday, a link up for writers on the first Wednesday of each month.

For each link up, I post an optional topic, but you can write about whatever you like as long as it pertains to writing in some way. This includes promoting your work!


The optional topic for today’s Words on Wednesday optional topic is to share your writing success. It can be as huge as signing on with one of the Big Five or as small as receiving a compliment on your work.

Okay, I admit I chose this month’s topic to toot my own horn.

But let me back up. Recently, I’ve been feeling pretty discouraged about my writing. I assume other writers are like me – either positive they’re writing the next best seller or they don’t think Mother Teresa would compliment their work.

But then I got an offer to become part of the Conscious Talk Magazine family, which is a new online magazine.

This was a badly needed ego boost.

I will be a columnist for Parenting & Family, Sex & Relationships, Book Reviews, and Writer’s Life. I will also submit poetry from time to time. So, with this job, I have a wide-reaching, eclectic gig.

As Glinda says in Wicked, “I couldn’t be happier.”

I look forward to hearing all about your success stories!

I started this link-up to create a support system for writers. With that in mind, please read and comment on at least one other post (suggest the one linked up before yours). The more you participate, the more our writing community will grow! Sharing the link up with your writing friends is another great way to meet other writers.

Because doesn’t support linkup programs, please paste the link to your blog post into the comment section below. Or, if you don’t have time to write a complete blog post, share on Twitter and use the hashtag #WordsOnWednesday.

  1. Writing has always been a passion of mine, I see it as a way to express myself in the most genuine way I know how. I am fortunate to have many mentors, so I decided that my first book would be inspirational, I saw this as my way to pay it forward. The book was not successful, so I decided to write a follow-up, which was also unsuccessful. I was new to the process and released independently, so I didn’t know much about marketing.

    I felt like it was time for me to give up on this dream, but then, I had a dream about a character, that dream turned into a few notes, then 10 pages, then a finished product. The funny thing is that the book is a romance, something I would have never imagined I would write about, but it turned out to be my best seller.

    What I’ve learned is that you can never give up on your dream. I was hurt, I felt like my efforts were in vain, but failure is a learning process. When plan A doesn’t work, it’s time to fine tune plan B, then C-Z.
