I noticed in the poll, that writers are leading the creative tribe as far as numbers go. I would love to know what you write, and what your plans are for what you write. I know some authors who write for their own expression, some blog, and some publish books... All are valid expressions, and I don't believe that "publication" is needed to validate your gift. Is your writing going well? Do you feel that you are fulfilling all you are called to do in your writing? If not, what blocks or hinderances do you have? Several of us in this group blog and have published, so we would be happy to answer questions related to those topics, or whatever! My belief is that a rising tide raises ALL boats - we succeed together by going higher and further than we can alone. So, whatever your goals, lets encourage one another to succeed!
