I’m really really scared that one day someone who likes my stories finds this blog and thinks the wrong thing. So I’m just going to write this to keep the record straight.
Firstly, it’s not about the money. I write because I love writing. Maybe at some point, you’ll notice that I write a crazy amount of different genres. That’s because stories come first with me. Always. But I noticed that I kind of lag when I shouldn’t while I have hundreds of stories I want to write before I die.
Secondly, yes, I know the goal is insane. But getting stories done, edited and published will be the only way to achieve it. So the more I work, the closer I’ll get. Hopefully, I’ll even exceed my expectations.
Thirdly, I will hereby never ever ever never churn out books just for the sake of money. I hate when writers do that. I’m not planning to start emulating them at any time. However, I do want to get into practice of writing/editing six days a week. (But hey, sometimes I’ll take holidays.) If I keep going, things will get done. And my $7500 goal is my measurement of how I’m doing at getting things finished.
There you have it. It’s not about the money. It’s about measuring my success in a way that everyone understands.
Thanks for reading this!
Also, feel free to leave (nice) comments. I’ll try to answer any questions you might have.
