You wanna become a doctor? No problem. Go to school, take your boards, complete a residency, and voilà.
An architect? Even easier. Thanks to technology, you don't even have to know how to draw.
For almost every profession, you follow the steps (schooling, internships, training, etc.) and then you become who it is you set out to be.
This isn't a rant about how hard it is to become published, but rather the opposite, how easy everything else seems. After attempting (and hopefully obtaining) publication, I can do anything, become anyone I want to. How awesome is that? Pretty darn awesome if you ask me (and I did).
So, if you weren't trying to become a writer, who would you be trying to become?
