Why I Want To Be An Author….
When people find out that I am a published author, that’s one of the first questions they ask…”What made you want to be an author?” Well, I wish I could answer and say “because the pay is really good”, (but it’s not, at least not yet); I could say “because the hours are so much better than that 9 to 5 I had many years ago”, ( but they’re not, I mean the hours really suck. I spend more time at this job than any other job I’ve ever had. And I’ve had tons of jobs); I could say “because I get lots of praise and recognition”, (but I don’t. Actually, I’ve come across lots more people who’ve wanted to criticize than praise my work and efforts); I could say “because it’s all I think about doing, even when I’m in the middle of doing other things I love,” and that’s the line that would be the most truthful.
The truth is….
I write because I love it.
I write because I want to give people great books to read.
I write because I have lots to say.
I write because I am a writer.
I write because I’M DAMNED GOOD AT IT!
“Why do I want to be an author?” you still ask….CAN YOU NOT HEAR THE WORDS THAT ARE COMING FROM MY FINGERS?
