A hero of profession may not have degrees, practices or medals, but they still flaunt their expertise.
Following my previous post I believe that the great heroes of profession, inspiration for treating writing professionally, are not ‘pure’ writers who have spent their lives solely as novelists and storytellers.
They are not ‘pure’ because they came to writing with a professional attitude from elsewhere that enabled them to reach the top.
What unites them are two things – a dedicated, professional approach to their work, and their skill at engaging their audience.
These are the two crucial skills I wish to emulate and formulate the base principles at Considered Words.
