The path I took to become a full-time writer, I don't think, is all that unique. But one of the biggest things that helped me was reading posts like this from authors who were where I wanted to be. I've mentioned it before in tons of my craft articles, but I used other authors' careers as a guide map.
Stories, stories, stories, and bread! But mostly story news about my novella, novelette, and short stories.

I write and edit ... a lot. It's my all-time everyday oxygen-blood. It is what fuels me. Yes, it's also my work, but writing is the thing I would do even if my career was in some other industry. Creating stories and thinking about them ARE the things I do instead of most other things. But it's also something that doesn't just happen.
So, I thought I ended July with a bang, but August ended up being my best month for short story sales in 2022 so far. In total, I made 3 story sales to top magazines and anthologies in the month. I'm more daring and wild in these newer stories. And I love it.

August is my short story challenge month, where I attempt to write a short story (+1,500-words) every day. I wanted to share how I'm able to write a new story within an hour a majority of days.
Ending July with a bang and kicking off August with two more short story sales, novel query and submission news, and starting my August short story challenge.

This month I'm working on revising (so many things lol), but one of those things is a short story! It's a secondary world fantasy where a young library page goes in search of her sister and the other girls who have gone missing from the city's library. As you can imagine, books and libraries play a huge part in the story and its themes.
