I agree, Kara. I want to get paid. It gives me a surge to know people actually "want" to read my books enough to pay for them. And I really do need the money. Otherwise, I'd write and give a lot of my books away. Regarding empowerment: The best thing about writing is the feeling of control. I can make these characters say and do anything I want them to. Well...unless they take over by forcing my hand. Lol. But it's a great feeling to know my characters are like employees. The work for me and I am THE BOSS> Great post!
