I think that’s the best part about writing. No one discourages you from writing if you have a steady income coming from some other source of course. I’ve written for a year now, although small, unnoticeable stuff, but no one says,”You know you should reconsider if you want to write anymore”!
A colleague of mine just left and he didn’t say goodbye – he just said – don’t stop writing!
This is appreciation for me. This is what motivates me.
