If a Writer Writes a Book…


If a tree falls in the forest and no one is around does it make a sound? I have been thinking about that question. My answer to it is yes. There has to be something that heard the sound, whether it is an insect, a bird or a random animal scurrying through.

How does this question relate to writing? A writer writes for many reasons, such as It’s my passion, I want to have a book published, I always dreamed of becoming a writer. Whatever the reason the big question is- If a writer writes a book and it never becomes published did the writer write the book?

It is one thing to say you wrote a book but it’s another to say you had a book published. Is it safe to say that most writers don’t feel like they truly wrote a book until they can hold the published copy in their hand?

What are your opinions?

I have written a book . It has not been published as of yet but I still feel like I truly wrote a book. If the manuscript ends up in the casket with me and no one other than a few close friends and relatives read the book I still wrote the book.
