As the question asks, what would make you think that you had made it as a writer?
If I could make a living from it
When one of my fixes gets a TV Tropes page.
If I wrote something and somebody bought it
Bought as in paid for or bought as in believed?
They don't have to believe it they just have to pay for it.
Writing is my passion. Since I was in my elementary grades I do write fiction stories in our dialect.
My passion in writing had developed when I started love reading the books and local magazines and comics.
Yes, but what would it take to make you think readers took you seriously as a writer?
Well it depends on them. I have started creating several blogs and I have several readers and followers.
They do appreciate my posts and articles according to their comments made.
Two of my blogs had received an award as the best lifestyle blog and the culture and art blog respectively.
That means they recognize me as an influential writer.
If I sold a manuscript to the Big Six.
You sell out!
Yeah, I want to sell out the first printrun and the second, and....
O think I have written 50-60 blog posts. However, I don't call myself a writer. For me, someone who writes is not a writer. You are a writer only when you have written a book-length manuscript, have been published on reputed magazines or websites.
I have written over a hundred articles, equal number of or probably more blog posts however, I still do not consider myself as a writer. To qualify as a writer, I feel that I should have written a book which is well accepted by readers and considered substantially by critics.
If someone actually quoted my work.
Deep down we are all writers. Authors of our own destinies. It starts when we are just toddlers and our imagination is still pretty wild.
Fan fiction! Even better, parodies
Ultimately though, being able to make a living from my writing. That would require writing at a speed faster than snail's pace though, so I know that's not going to become reality any time soon.
I know that you will easily know it if you have writing talent if you can easily write scripts and plots and your imagination is quite wide. It's very easy for you to write a book.
