One of the reasons I enjoy writing books.

I don’t have to work as hard as I do, but I enjoy what I do (most of it – editing still sucks), so it’s a passion and drives me to do as much as I can every day to get closer to my goals as a writer.  I remember when my writing goals were not as lofty as they are now.  When I was happy to peck away and type a page or two in a day, and maybe connect with another author on-line.  To read something about writing to try and learn what I ought to know to be a successful writer.

One of the reasons I enjoy writing is the sense of accomplishment it gives me when I look on my book shelf and see my two books.  Each day I know I am getting closer to more of my stories being published and joining them.  With each new book comes new experience gained through the process of writing and self-publishing.
As the days wear by at what seems like an ever increasing speed I can see my books develop before my eyes.  Everybody is busy and we each are responsible for exactly where we are at this time.  I choose to be a writer and therefore spend every spare moment I have thinking about writing, writing, doing research for my writing, proofing, editing, promoting or something to do with writing.
I also get to watch and track the sales of my books.  I can watch the number of books sold climb each day, week after week, month after month as I am slowly becoming discovered in the literary world as an author.

Your time is yours.  How you spend it is up to you.  When I think of all the years I wasted that I could have been writing it makes me sick.  It took me 44 years to figure out what I wanted to do with my life, what I enjoy doing more than anything else.  Almost anything else, I still enjoy playing with my kids and wife more than writing.  Now as the days go by I know I have done the best I can do that day.  In the mornings I hope out of bed and can’t wait to get back to work at doing what I love.  I am doing more each day to get closer to my dream than I ever thought was possible.  I am seeing results of my work that I would never have believed two years ago.

The best part is when I read a review from someone who has discovered one of my books and they obviously loved it.  They got what I was putting out there, they understood it, and enjoyed it.  Then I feel more than fulfilled because I got to share the magic and joy of reading through one of my stories to a reader.  Hopefully I have gained a lifelong fan from that point onward as long as my stories don’t get cookie cutter or predictable.
