A finished work is the only thing you can have for publication. So, after completing the project, you should now submit your work for publication. This is how you’re going to track your progress whether you are rejected or accepted.
2. One should try new things
If you’re writing a lot of blog posts for a couple of months, maybe you should try to write an essay for a change. An essay that you can submit on magazine publication. Or if you’re a student, submit it to the school publication. This is just a matter of doing new things or leveling up on what you can do.
3. Always believe that you’re a writer
If you write regularly, then you are considered as a writer. Do not be afraid to call yourself a writer. Claim it and you will have it.
