This is a shout out to all writers, in print, Kindle or facing the blank page at this very moment. I’m counting on you.
Really. I’m reward driven. Whether it’s points on my credits cards or a bonus tenth cup of coffee for free, I live for the perks. The more I’m invested in something, the bigger the reward should be.
The hardest thing I do each day is write. It’s easy to get distracted with family, friends, blogs, marketing, daydreaming that next novel and walking Frankie (our bloodhound). When I write well, or at least crank out enough decent pages that I don’t feel woefully guilty, I want a big reward.
That’s where all you authors and authors-soon-to-be come in. My favorite indulgence is reading. If there was a program that calculated pages flipped and books consumed every month, I’d be in the Super Platinum Rewards Club. Curling up with a great book is my ultimate reward for a job well-done. Every night I look forward to bed and an intriguing new story before going to sleep. It makes me want to get up the next morning and write my heart out.
So, to all you wonderful people out there facing the keys, write something great! I’m counting on you.
