William Faulkner once said “Don’t be a writer; be writing.”
Faulkner’s words make sense if anyone ought to follow them religiously.
If you are looking for starting a career or want to experiment with your writing style then must read following reasons:
- It adds an extra income stream
No doubt everyone is earning but why not have some more when you can make easy money by being an authorpreneur. Many best seller authors such as Amish Tripathy, Chetan Bhagat etc. have started their journey with passion in writing and see now them what they have become.
- Looks good on your CV
I have seen that only the professor or big writers have privilege to boost their publication portfolio on their CV. Nonetheless, this digital age of publishing has not only opened the gate for common person but also elite authors are competing in the same place. Now, anyone can write, publish and sell their book/ebook globally due to democratization of publishing domain (Do It Yourself) fashion.
- Develop Writing Skills and Knowledge
As in other fields, the famous proverb “Practice Makes a Man Perfect” stands true in the writing career as well. In order to improve your skills and knowledge one has practice on regular basis and hence able to pivot and optimize their skillset. This actually works just try it for 21 days and see the changes.
- It is easy and quick
This is the era of self-publishing, it is being witnessed everywhere such as in video (YouTube, Vimeo, Wistia), audio (audible), and ebook (Kartindo, Bookbaby, Lulu, Kindle).
Now, anyone can publish their book/ebook with digital publishers and can distribute on any platform. The hassles of traditional publishing are no more stopping indie or self-published authors to share the book marketplace which was once dominated by traditional book players.
- No wait for publisher’s permission
Authors have many options to publish their book/eBooks such as: Vanity Publishing, Do It Yourself Publishing, Indie Publishing, Print on Demand, and Self-publishing which further scales into book, ebook or audio book publishing.
Overall, becoming an author has never been so easy and economical with so many DIY tools and options availability. If you are an aspiring author or published writer please share your reasons for becoming an author or writer. (Please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org)
