One thing about “Why you should NOT WRITE a book” I didn’t see: One could want to write a book because he / she wants to tell something. In exemple: I wrote a short story about “Little princess Amalut and the dancing cakes” for my daughter. Not to become a famous writer and not to earn millions of Euro’s, though that would be great, but to amuse my daughter and nothing else. That the little story was fun to write and did amuse my daughter very well when she was about six years old, tells me that when you have to say something you should say it. And don’t let this article intimidate you when you want to say something.
