Today is National Author’s Day.
If you are an author—whether you’re self-published with a single book to your credit or multi-published by a major publisher—celebrate today. Whether your books have sold millions of copies or only a handful of copies, you have done something many people want to do and never achieve.
If you are a reader, send a note to your favorite authors (or several favorite authors) to let them know their words have entertained, educated, or inspired you. Writing can be a lonely business, and it’s easy to become discouraged. A few words from a happy reader can a long way toward encouraging a writer and motivating her to work even harder. Give your favorite author another reason to celebrate today by letting her know what her words have meant to you.
