Short post today, but I was curious what motivates you? Every day, I wake up and I write this blog and I start to work on whichever work in progress is currently at bat. It would be easy for me to just shut off and not do any work. I could desperately use more sleep which waking up early to make sure I reach my goals hinders. Despite the lack of sleep, I trudge on working each day to either better a piece already in existence or creating new content. Every day. At least, for the most part. A girl needs to take a break every so often.
What keeps me going every day is my desire to have something to show for myself. I want to have some sort of tangible legacy that is outside of the experiences people may have with me. Having a book, either hard copy or e-book would provide me with that ability to say look even when everyone who knew me has died, someone can still find my work. I can still reach people even after I’m gone. That’s what I want. I also want to go to my high school reunion and be able to say I’m a published author. I suppose that’s why I dedicate so much time to writing.
So what motivates you?
