I don’t write for the money, although to get a few book sales, or have an article accepted into a paid publication would be nice.
I don’t write to gain recognition, although when people like what I share I do sit up and take notice and think it’s quite alright.
I don’t write to please others, although when people agree it does please me.
Mostly I write because I love it, and that’s just alright with me.
I don’t care why you do it. Don’t care in which genre you choose to let loose your muse.
If you’re not writing for the pure pleasure of it first, you might ought to find something else to do.
That having been said, let me add just a tad. I get quite annoyed with those who say they haven’t time to write, yeah, it makes me just a bit mad.
You’ve got time to gossip on your favorite social media site. You’ve got time to watch just one more video about the ending you’ll surely get onto Facebook and gripe.
You’ve got time to sit and listen to just one more podcast show, so you can talk…talk…talk… about all the things you want people to think you know.
Let me just advise all you want-to-be writers. Get off your tails, stop making excuses and get on with it please.
Piss you off? Too bad. I’ve heard one too many excuses today, so now you’re hearing from me.
