When I went to write my book, I never thought of writing for the money. I wrote my book to share it. It was a story that was a part of me for so long that it needed to be shared with people.
Within the last two weeks I’ve had people approach me saying how they have enjoyed/ are enjoying my story. I’ve had people shocked with my story – in the fact they couldn’t believe that I wrote it. I’ve even had someone say and I’m quoting here,
“Every time I verbally said ‘wow’ or think ‘just one more chapter then I have to go to bed’ I had to remind myself that you wrote this… and the freaking blows my mind.”
It’s compliments like that that keeps me writing. I don’t write for the money. I don’t write for the best-seller status, movie/ show rights, or awards. I write because I love to write. I self-published because I want to share it.
I don’t do it for the money – I do this for my future readers. 🙂
