Before it was the “in thing” for everyone in social media to do, I’ve had the life long goal of writing a book.
I never knew if it would be fiction, business or something else, but I’ve always wanted to have a printed stack of binded paper on a shelf with my name on it.
I know what he means because I have always felt the same. When I was a teenager, I had a fantasy to write a best-selling book. I, too, didn’t know if it would be fiction or a piece about travel or technology.
With more and more bloggers coming out with books that are so elementary in approach (to me) that I could have written them, I wonder whether I should just do it.
Addendum: Mitch Joel, who adds his voice to the comment section below, was so inspired by everything everyone else commented that he wrote his own take why everyone should be an author. His takeaway is if you don’t have a unique perspective, don’t write it. If you do, do it.
