It is a pain enough to have to go to work and slave for someone else for most of the day. Then when you have time for yourself what do you do? You get right back to work writing fiction. Why?
I can tell you my reasons for writing fiction. You may think that I only write for money since you see all the ads on this blog. To be honest making money from my writing is a goal. Is that your goal too? "Duh!" you say again. But the reason why I put myself through the hardships such as world building and character creation, is because I like it. No, I freaking love it! That's why I do this.
Some people write because they want to be the next big author. I have to tell you that is not a strong enough reason to want to be an author. It takes so much to just get a book out there into the market and I have to say that if you don't love writing then you are not going to have a successful career, what you're going to have is a short one.
There is nothing easy about writing fiction. "Do I have to say duh, again?" you say. You do, but not to me. I am just complaining about the people I have met who think that writing books is an easy way to make big bucks.
