THAT IS WHAT I WANT

I think that there are very few things in life that truly make you feel wonderful and beaming. For me, one of the best experiences...is when you read a book that leaves you feeling inspired, happy and satisfied. Whether you simply enjoyed the story or whether you can relate to the characters, it doesn't matter. What matters is that you truly enjoyed the book so much that it influenced how you felt afterwards.

Well that is exactly what I want to do. I want to write books that touch people's hearts, draws them in, leaves them feeling happy and wanting more. I don't care if I am recognized by the book critics as a great writer or if I win writing awards. All I ever wanted was to share my work and hopefully make people feel as good as other writers and their work has made me feel. I want my work to help other people get through tough times as many great books have helped me. That is why I write.

  6. It's refreshing to know that there are people with such true intention still writing!

    I think the writing gets stale if it's done for any other reason. In the end, isn't that feeling what compels us to write? It is for me, I think.

  7. Murees, you believe in yourself enough, there is no reason why you cannot excel at writing. Just keep going. You have what it takes. And you have faith. That's huge.

  9. I like that - concise, sweet and a reminder of the best part about writing.

    Of course, the possibility of multimillion contract is a nice motivator as well...

  10. noonbutabloghead - It is nice, but as long as I can feel proud about my writing, it is all good. As long as I can write what I want.
