Why do you write? Are you “driven” to put those words in your head on paper? Are you just dying to see your name on the cover of a book? You just love getting those monthly royalty checks?
All those are true, for sure. However, there is another totally selfish reason I enjoy writing…the writer community. I cannot believe all the people I’ve met…well, maybe I can. Yesterday was my birthday. The number of “Happy Birthday” comments on my Facebook passed my ability to count! I tried to respond to all of them, but I know I missed quite a few. Still…all those birthday wishes from people I wouldn’t have known if I weren’t in the writer community…it made yesterday so special!
The writer community is one of the most giving, friendliest, helpful group of people I’ve ever had the pleasure of being a part of…and given my age, I’ve been in a number of different professional communities.
So thank you to the writing community!
