Why? Or why not?
I pray for Gods guidance rather than success. I don't think you write well if your first thought is "Am I going to become successful at this and inherit all that comes with success." Where is the passion and the creativity if that is your first thought.
Yes, I talk to the Lord about publishing, first of all, and yes, about succeeding at it. Succeeding would not necassarily mean becoming the next Joel Osteen or C.S. Lewis. To me success would mean, graduating from 'writer' to published author.
