Writing for fun or money…

How do you see your writing? Is it a hobby or career? I’ve talked to several writer’s lately that say they write for fun, but they do enjoy the royalty payments. Most writers work a full time job and fit their writing in where ever they can.

I love my writing. It’s so soothing and spirit lifting. I do work a full time job. Actually I own a Accounting business so I stay pretty busy, along with being a Children’s Minister and parent. My writing carries me to another world. It’s in my writing that I can get lost and leave the worries and stress behind.

I have to admit that it’s fun when the sales reports update on the various sites where my books are. And I would be crazy if I didn’t say I’d love to get a huge publishing contract. But I’d be happy to see some nice sales reports. I’ve been really happy so far with my sales. My writing takes the forefront in this scheme of things. It’s the passion that spurs me on. 

As we discuss sales, I’ve been telling you about the audio books. It’s been so fun going through the auditions. If any of you do voice overs for audio books, send me an audition. I’m trying to get those published this week if possible. I’ve got to make a decision. It’s funny how you know what you want it to sound like.

Don’t let slow sales or the need for more to conquer your passion for writing. Keep putting pen to paper or fingers to keys. If you let your dreams die, it will affect you in a bad way.

As always, good writing and May God Bless You…

  1. At this point, I’m writing strictly for enjoyment because I don’t exactly get a huge payment from it. Plus, writing full time takes a huge amount of my private time, which is being spent in other areas of my life. But writing is an escape for me and a complete pleasure, so it’s something that I will continue to do no matter what. And it’s rewarding to know that people love what I write. It’s a great learning experience! 🙂

  2. I wish I could write for money! lol. That is my dream career! But I guess its like being discovered and the price to self publish is too much for me right now and I don’t even know what the full benefits of that are anyway.

    The first dollar I make off of my work with be cherished. Probably framed!

    1. If it’s a dream, then pursue it. Do like I did, just start slow and work your way up. If you need any encouragement or advice on self publishing just let me know. I started from scratch and it’s been an interesting experience. I wouldn’t go back and do anything any different.
