Yes, you are already doing fine with your writing career. You have several pieces published and are cranking out more. Or, maybe your writing career isn’t launching quite as well as you had hoped. You find yourself on a path of trial and error, in a dizzying game of blind man’s bluff, or bashing your head against a brick wall, over and over and over.
Have you thought about formal education? It certainly can’t hurt. There are innumerable sources available to us today that make getting an education an attainable thing. Whether it’s finding the right college or university, getting funding for your education, or choosing an online course, a degree (applicable or not) is a tremendous credit towards your abilities as a writer.
While researching something completely different today, I ran across the website for Full Sail University. Here’s what caught my eye:
