why write if you have a choice?

    What if you have been given a chance to choose a different path in life, if that happens, would you still continue your career as a writer or would you just make yourself a millionaire as an entrepreneur?

      Make millions then retire at the age of 30 and then write.

    Why not write a super bestseller, make millions, and then retire to write...

    I have always had 'different paths' or jobs other than writing, but the writing goes on whatever else I am doing.  Even if I was worth millions, I would still have to do something with my time and couldn't imagine not writing.

    I write because it's what I love, money is a nice bonus but essentially inconsiquential. Even if I did get rich, id'e still write for sure. smile

    My goal is to be a millionaire writer...

    Honestly, I have to write. If I miss writing one day I feel miserable.

    I can't not write. I tried it once and was miserable. It's my outlet and salvation when things are bad. Sure I'd love to make money at it, but honestly that's not why I write. I just love it. And if you're going to have an addiction, there are worse ones to have.

    There are some that do and some that don't write specifically for the money.  The writers that tend to be more creative are those who do not write under the motivation of $s.

    I like creative writing and if I was motivated by the dollars.. then I would publish a series of books for those who don't know how to enjoy themselves! lol

    I would definitely follow a more lucrative path if one presented itself (and, in fact, I am in the process of doing so) so that my writing could be relegated to a hobby rather than having to be churned out to pay the bills.

    I dont write for money. For me, there is no choice, writing continues...

    I would stay on my path of being a writer and become a published author. Don't care about making millions just want to write books that others will enjoy reading as much as I have enjoyed writing them
