Writing Tools: What You Write Will Be Important to Someone! By Susan Hanniford Crowley

A few days ago, I was on Twitter. A young writer talked about receiving a remark from someone that writing a book is really not that big of an accomplishment. I wrote back to ignore that person. Later I went on to Tweet this:

Dear Writers, Most people in the world talk about writing a book. Few accomplish it. So if you have written a book right to “the end, ” it’s a HUGE accomplishment! On top of that, someone somewhere will NEED your book. It will make a difference. So write!

In the movie 2012, Jon Cusak portrays an author whose book was published but seemingly didn’t go very far as he has boxes of his book in his hallway. Now he is a part-time chauffeur.

On a day when you feel bad about your writing as if you aren’t making the headway in your career you had dreamed of, watch 2012 all the way through. Yes, it’s a disaster film but for writers everywhere, there is gold. Don’t skip the end.

I know authors like gauge their success by reviews on Amazon. What do you do if your readers are shy and won’t post on Amazon? Be grateful for their comments wherever you get them-as you’re walking through a conference, via email, or on social media.

You never know when someone somewhere will read your book and it is exactly what you need. I know, and once you have the experience of knowing, you won’t stop writing. Being able to reach beyond ourselves through the written word is a gift.

Go and enjoy your gift!

Truly,

Susan
