What do you want to accomplish with writing?
There are two major things, and one minor I aim to achieve with my writing:
- Entertain and inspire others. I can remember as a small kid reading The Hobbit for the first time, as my first adult book, and being blown away by the rich and detailed world Tolkien had created. It was the first driving force in my desire to write. If I can spark that creativity in just one other person in my lifetime, I will consider myself a very successful author.
- To tell the stories that have been forming in my head for years. Some have been begging to get out for decades.
- If I can be financially fruitful enough to quit my day job and concentrate on it full-time, I will be a very happy man.
