I love reading the comments on the Sisterhood of the Traveling Pen blog. Makes me feel like I’m part of a big, sometimes frustrated, but mostly happy family
This week’s thought-provoking question is by Ruth:
We all know that the publishing world is changing. The big New York publishers are fading fast and electronic books are the future. An author must become an expert in social media and spend endless hours on self promotion. Writing has become a small business. My question is: Why bother? What drives you to keep on writing?
PAM: I write because when words flow from my fingertips and a brand new world appears across a white page–little black symbols that trigger images in the minds of others, so close to the visions those squiggly lines created in my own head that we all enter the same world–it completes me.
I write because it’s my God-given talent.
I write because I don’t want to take Prozac and drinking makes me puke. (www.pamelafoster.blogspot.com)
