Should you write the book of your heart, or should you write a book for money? – by Joanna Penn…

Either way, you’d have to have a LOT of luck as well as tons of talent. It makes no sense to write for money. Do you have any idea how many authors actually make enough to survive while they are alive?! Very few! Write what you love & do your best. At least you can walk with other artists with dignity! 😉 ❤

Author: Sherrie Miranda

I am an author who writes in order to create more peace and understanding in the world. I am a teacher who has taught students from many countries of the world. I am also a life and writing coach. I love to travel and first traveled to other countries before finally deciding to see some of the U.S., places that foreigners I met have been to, but that I hadn't. I am happily married to a teacher who identifies himself first, as a musician. We hope to someday travel together to places where I read my novel(s) and speak to people about loving life while Angelo plays his piano and entertains the audience too. I also hope to assist seniors and troubled teens to write their life stories in order to heal. Life has much to offer so I always encourage young people to hang in there and know that things WILL get better.
