You’re an artist. You know it and I know it. You didn’t need me to affirm that you are an artist. Right?
However, are you a professional?
Perhaps the question would be better phrased: Do you consider yourself a professional? Your answer matters.

I love quotes about writing. I hope you do, too. If you do, I’d love to know what your favorite quote about the craft is – how about sharing it with us?
With that in mind, I asked fellow bloggers for their favorite quotes, and, oh boy, what a response!
Below you’ll find some of the best quotes about writing ever.
It’s true, every writer needs a little inspiration every now and then, and some of us need a lot of inspiration all of the time.
But sometimes inspiration can be just as hard to come by as words are to write.
I’ve got good news for you, thanks to Dana Sitar it doesn’t have to be that way.
I’m sure you know what it is like to have a blank page or canvas in front of you, but you’re unable to capture the great idea you had because you can’t fully remember it.
You need something to stimulate your thoughts or help you remember.
I have a solution that’s been working for me and it may help you, too. Truth is, we tend to make it harder than it needs to be.
Have you ever read something you wrote or viewed something you created – be it a blog post, a painting, landscaping, or anything that was meant to be creative – then realized it’s more typical than unique?
You followed a proven formula. So your creation should be attracting attention. But it’s not. It’s part of the collective.
It is time to become an individual, to stand out and be noticed.
Lately, I’ve been getting a lot of questions about how to edit a book. “I have a 60,000 word manuscript,” people tell me, “but I don’t know how to know if it’s ready to publish.”
Some of these writers want to finish up the manuscripts they began during NaNoWriMo. Others are in the middle of their first draft and are enthusiastically thinking ahead to their next steps.
However, they’re all asking the same question: How do you know when your book is finished?
It’s a funny thing, creating something that matters. Sometimes we create something that touches the many, but too often we create stuff that doesn’t seem to appeal to anyone, not even ourselves. (I’m using “we” so I don’t feel so alone.)
I’m a writer. The page is my canvas, but your creativity may have a different canvas.
Whatever canvas you use to create, I bet you want to create something wonderful, even magical – every time. I’ve finally found the answer to creating something wonderful and it’s really the only way that works.
