Kathryn Lang, at Successful Freelance Writer, urges us not to imitate others or try to duplicate their writing journey.
Have a great weekend!
Great advice! And a great question!
I hope you have a great weekend too! I hope I never duplicate someone's journey but find contentment in my own. :-)
It's such an important thought! Thanks for sharing that, Susan. Hope you have a great weekend. :)

Hi Patti -A vision and purpose for our writing keeps us on the path. Otherwise, it's too easy to quit.Blessings,Susan :)
Thanks for these links, Susan. I loved Tiffany Colter's response that she writes because her characters are alive. That is so true. And Kathryn Lang's encouragement about forging your own path is perfect for where I am right now. Thanks so much!
Hi Kristen -I'm so glad the links proved meaningful to your current situation.Blessings,Susan :)
The two tips go together. I think a clearly-defined purpose is all about finding out who you are as a person and pursuing writing projects that express that. The second tip, not imitating others, means finding your voice and not writing things just because they are easy or what everyone else is doing. Find projects that you love and that fit who you are. Thanks Susan!
Hi Denise -Thanks for summarizing the articles. Copying other writers won't bring out our unique gifts. On Antiques Road Show, they sometimes find excellent copies of genuine articles. While the items have some value, it doesn't come close to the original. I always wonder how far the artist would have gone if they'd developed their own ideas.Blessings,Susan :)
