Being a hobby writer and being a pro writer are two totally different things. Although they go together as we all start out as amateurs and hobbyists before crossing over to that pro writer world.
But if you want to go from being a hobby writer to being a pro writer (aka: making money from your writing), there are several transitional steps you need to take.
I wrote a guest post for the Huffington Post sharing my top 5 tips for going from hobby writer to pro. The very first tip of which is: Work On Your Mindset
Wait, what? Did I just say “work on your mindset”?
Because mindset is everything. Especially when you want to do something at a professional level.
The professional level requires a different mindset than the hobby level. In the hobby level, it’s OK to be half-committed or to not care if you only do your writing once a week or once a month.
The pro level requires you to go all in. To be fully committed to showing up every day and doing the work. And this all begins in your mind.
When you create a success mindset, you’ll be in a better place to take the actions needed to go pro.
