Just so you know…Leisure reading in the US is at an all-time low according to the Washington Post

So why is everyone I know writing a book?

Is it trendy like Swing Dance was in the 90’s?

Is it that self publishing has become so easy, and cheaper?

Is it because of the idea “anyone can do it”?

Do they think their idea will make them money?

Is it because the internet has given writers another platform?

Has technology made it easier to write a book?

Is it because so many people have lost their jobs, and now have a chance to do what they have always wanted to do, so they are pursuing delayed projects or deferred dreams?

 

I would love to hear your comments.
