10 Embarrassing And Self-Centered Things Writers Are REALLY Thinking About

Writers often say, with a self-righteous sneer, that they’re not in this business to write best -sellers. They write for themselves, for the love of the craft. They write because they HAVE to, because writing is like breathing, and if they don’t do it they will die. But maybe they just say all that crap to sound cool. Maybe what they’re really thinking is a little more like this…

1. Who they will thank in the acknowledgment page (of the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

2. The praise they will receive from reviewers (for the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

3. How impressed their family and friends (and the people from creative writing classes) will be when they get a book deal (for the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

4. Where they will go on book tour (for the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

5. What they will say when appearing on Oprah (to talk about the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

6. What they will say to their boss when quitting their day job because of all the success (with the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

7. If kids will one day be assigned to read in English class (the book they haven’t finished writing yet).

8. Which celebrities will play the main characters in the movie version (of the book they haven’t finished writing yet.)

9. What they will do with all the money (from the book they haven’t finished writing yet).

10. What they will write next (just as soon as they finish this first book.)
