Day 1:Why Do You Write?
Refreshing in an eatery one of these days, then somebody approaches you with your new book in his hands.
The way he approached you showed it all that he placed you in high esteem.
He is a writer. And he threw a big question that kept your mouth wide agape for seconds. ‘Why do you write?’
What will be your reply?
Often times, people do ask me this kind of question. My reply is simply to fulfill my own quota in this society of mine and to raise a voice for or against something.
But I know I am a big liar.
We write for many reasons, but two things comes, if our writings becomes successful. It is the basics of our success. Fame and Money!
You may write for reasons whatsoever, but you can’t run from the fact that you want these two.
You want to be famous like Wole Soyinka and rich like Brian Tracy, the writer of many bestselling books?
Let the thirst for fame and money ginger you to write, but don’t let it get into your muse. Don’t be distracted. It is dangerous to your writing career.
