…I don’t know about you, but sometimes I get a creative itch I gotta scratch.
Take a few years back when I had the idea for a fantastic fiction piece. Hey it was my idea, so it had to be fantastic.
To cut a long story short, literally, the story was about a guy that had to knock down a pedestrian at a crossing to clear off a huge gambling debt.
For days I could see the character mulling over the can I/ can’t I conversation in his head. Would he do it? I could even see the Hollywood version of it.
And like an itch that I had to scratch, I knew I had to write it, or have someone write it for me.
I went with the second route and that book is now in the Amazon kindle store. (Blood Money – Robert D Connors.)
Of course that book took off and I made a squillion dollars.
Thing is, I didn’t care. The fact that that story line I dreamed up is out there is both amazing, and it relieved that itch I had.
Sometimes it makes sense to take the route to where the majority of customers are, but sometimes you’ve got to scratch that itch of yours.
Just to say you did it. That you’ve it off your list, so you can move forward. That’s how a lot of things I did came about.
The kids books, work books, fiction, video, email writing, all itches I needed to scratch.
So what’s your itch? What keeps up at night? We can all get carried away with the making money thing, but sometimes you gotta get something out of your system.
That’s why most people like the WriteCome site. I’ve had people tell me that they’ve got into fiction writing because of one of my courses. And that makes my day.
I guess Writecome’s kinda like the equivalent of classroom full of kids with head lice. Where my itching for course making, causes others to scratch their creative itches.
Get in today and you can also pick up the latest Easter goodness that also dropped.
PS – Tempted to scratch your head right now? I knew that head lice reference would get ya. 🙂
