Ten Reasons to Publish

There is always a deep reason why some writer will publish but in the end it is a personal choice to write a book and publish it.  I believe that there are ten reasons to go and publish a book.  I am limiting it to ten simply because there are hundreds if not thousands of reasons why you should write and publish a book.

1) Because this matters to you:  You should publish a book which matters to you and that you want others to read and review and comment on.  Of course to publish a book that matter to others is something different but not a challenge.

2) Because you want to publish:  This is a must if you do not want to publish but simply write you can, and should do this.  Publishing is something gar different from writing.

3) Because that book is yours:  You want to see you name on a book do you not?  Why not publish it?

4) Because there are many ways to publish:  You can go into the traditional publishing world, and you can go the self-publishing world, but there is more to it, you have more choice now than you would have a while ago.

5) Because publishing offers something that writing does not:  It is simply put, money.  When you publish you can, and often do, make some money, with writing and only writing you will not make money.

6) Because it is a new challenge: Writing a book is one thing, but getting it published is another and it is a great way to learn about you and your goals.  This opens an avenue that you might not have explored yet.

7) Because you love what you have to share: Even if you publish an e-book, it is still something to publish.  It goes without saying that you should publish something good, with a good editing job done.

8 ) Because you know you can publish:  It gives a sense of freedom to be able to publish.  It is even better to know that at some point yes you can and will be published with something of your own work.  The challenge here is knowing that you can, it does not have to be the most expensive thing you have ever done, but you need to love reach moment that you work towards the goal of publishing.

9) Because publishing is something that anyone can do:  Publishing, especially self-publishing, means that you can publish a book you have dreamed of publishing.

10) Because it is fun: publishing for all the challenges is fun, if we can write we can publish.  It is really that simple.
