People sometimes ask me what I love most about writing. It’s hard to pick just one thing. But if I really have to think about it…there can only truly be one answer: The opportunity to pay it forward.
If you have followed my blog for a while now, you know that I like to promote self-pubbed authors. I love to do author interviews, book reviews and post general helpful information to encourage other authors.
This morning I woke up to a lovely email from a new author asking for advice. Despite my insanely busy day, I was happy to put everything on hold to respond.
Why? Because this is what I love to do.
In November it will be my 1 year anniversary for self-publication and there is so much that I have learned. Through teaching my writers group, countless hours researching online and going through the hard knocks of rejection. What sort of writer would I be not to turn around help others?
So my goal is to always pay it forward. It’s the right thing to do. We authors need to stick together.
