Writing for fun and profit

Writing for fun and profit

This post summarizes and makes fun of the emails that I receive at least once a day, if not more. It is not serious, but my brother wrote a children’s book and self-published it in 2008. He did not make any money from it, but he is proud that he did it.

Ah, the joys of retirement! I don't know about you, but I get bombarded with emails about turning my hobby of writing into a cash cow. I mean, sure, I could be the next J.K. Rowling and rake in millions, but let's be real here - my artwork is so bad it would make a caveman blush.

But fear not, my fellow retirement enthusiasts! If you have a knack for writing fun children's books that inspire and bring joy, you too can cash in on your passion. At Write For Fun, we'll help you turn your writing career into a profitable venture. Because let's face it, it's about time we share some of the profits in this industry, am I right?

Now, I'll be the first to admit that writing for fun and profit is a dream come true. There's nothing like creating something beautiful and getting paid for it. But don't just take my word for it - with our tools and a large audience of readers, you'll be a published author in no time.

Sure, you could try your luck with the big publishing houses, but let's be honest - they don't give us writers the time of day. They're too busy impressing each other with their fancy degrees and inner circles. But don't let that discourage you! My first self-published book had bloggers going crazy for it. And now, I even have my own blog.

So go ahead, retire from your day job and dive into the world of writing. Who knows, you could be the next big thing in children's literature. And if all else fails, at least you'll have a fun hobby to keep you busy.
