Thank you for including me!
I agree with a lot of what you said about writing so other people will read it. For me, I’ve turned to writing as a method storytelling. We all have stories and more often than not we can relate to a good story. If I were writing simply for myself I would keep a diary.
Whether I’m writing fiction of nonfiction I want to lure the reader in. I want them to be right there, every step of the way, traveling the adventure with the Lead character, whoever that may be.
I have no grand plan of writing a novel or a book and becoming famous and selling it for movie rights and all those other goals I’ve read that writer’s have. I simply want to tell a story and entertain readers, to connect with them and in hopes, read their stories too.
