The rich and famous writers of the world that serve as household names are few and far between when you consider how many writers exist in the world. Would it be nice to only have to work 20 or so hours a week and spend the rest of my time writing? Of course. But I’m not making any plans contingent on that any time soon, if ever.
People will comment things to me like “well when you become a rich author” or if you’re my dad “When you get the first royalty check from your book’s movie deal” but I honestly don’t write for the money. My dream is to share my stories with others.
My ultimate dream involves being in a bookstore and overhearing someone talk about how much they like my book(s). It is a persisting and shining dream in my head.
The truth is, I don’t even expect to make much of anything off my writing.
But honestly, if I can just make enough supplemental income to buy the nice cat litter that clumps, and go on the occasional vacation, then I’ll be fine.
Bye for now!
