Short Shots City

It’s ok to follow your dream instead of the money.

I feel like money has been the measurement of success for too long. we take the high-paying jobs over the satisfying jobs because it’s what society says we should do. You need money to be successful, right?

I think that it’s time to measure success by satisfaction and happiness in life. And that doesn’t have to mean money.

As a writer, I feel like success can be measured by writing well. I can be successful by writing a novel or a series of short stories that I feel represent who I am.

Over the next year, I want to make money, but I will feel successful if I can create the stories that make me happy. I will write for myself first, and if other people love it too, that’s great.
