“Writing is its own reward.”
– Henry Miller
“So don’t expect much else!”
This is an interesting quote for today. Why do you write? Is it for fame? Money? Attention? Lately, I have realized that these motivators drive me more than they should. They usually only lead to disappointment and disillusionment. Miller’s quote is both wise and honest. I might amend it to say, “Writing is usually it’s own reward…so don’t expect much else!”
I spend way too much time thinking about my audience instead of thinking about the story I want to tell. That’s my marketing background coming through my work. My focus for my personal work this week is going to be to write something I like and quit worrying if anyone is going to read it. Who’s with me?
