The history speaks in favor of the question. Not one or two, there are many writers who made their fortune by writing. Writing is a divine art and it ain’t cut loose for everyone. Most try and fail, but some know the ‘how and what’ part in order to turn themselves into a successful writer. The crucial part is ‘business mind’ if you are a pleasure writer, then most probably the book would be biased and tuned for simply imparting your mind, for some this works. But most of the times a business minded writing should have the punch and a packed in surprise that must drive the curiosity of a reader to next level.
A real life example for the question would be the legendary J.K Rowling. In fact, her ‘Harry Potter’ is one name that nobody might forget ever. Rowling was once downcast by life, lost everything and had to live with her 5-year-old daughter in poverty. Her first work was rejected 12 times before being published. Once the poverty stuck poor lady is now a self-made billionaire and philanthropist. In fact, her life story is and was an inspiration to millions around the world.
A writer shouldn’t simply be a scriber. The world around them, their life, and experience everything must reflect in their words, which in fact should speak their heart. If a writer can tie a person within the limits of pages, then they are half successful. If the story juggles with the curiosity and entertainment nerve, it’s almost done. If the book packs the real punch, then rest will be history! The book might be transferred into a plot or movie, which is the best a writer is offered. Once earned reputation is the difficult characteristic to be maintained when it comes to the pen and paper play!
