Just a quick post here today since many of us are busy with the A to Z blog challenge. Given April is when taxes are due in the U.S., this is first year (2013) that I wrote off writing expenses. It's a motivator to sign up for conferences and workshops and national memberships when it's part of my small business as a writer. Now to get to that pesky income stage, where I'm making money from my writing and not just spending my own money.
Here's to dreams, and for more complicated taxes. Cheers!
Stay encouraged everyone, and keep working toward your publication goals. Even if it's taxes that motivate you :)
