This seems like a simple statement to most people, but I know that there is much more hidden in this two word sentence. I write because I want to publish. I write because I love writing. I write to make some money for my family. I write so I don’t need a day job.
There is always a reason for writing; the same can be said about publishing.
I publish because I am confident that people need to read my book. I publish because I am a writer. I publish because something I’ve written needs to be shown to others.
Writing and publishing might not have been “in my blood” since I was a baby, but now I feel a need to write and then publish a book again. It’s something I love to do and that I have passion for.
The two things go well together, and it gives me a good deal of joy to sit down and create something. It springs from a desire to share information to readers.
This is what writing and publishing allows me to do. It allows me to build on things I think about and to learn about the marketing side of publishing. This is a business, yes, and it’s something I would never give up, but it is also something I simply love doing.
