People decide to write books for many reasons, and you might have a few of your own. I remember a woman who was DESPERATE for her husband to write a book. Her husband, a gregarious man and a dead ringer for a famous person, told me that when they attended parties, he told the same story again and againâ€”and again. (Can you feel her pain?) So with a book, he could tell his story once and for all.
Maybe this is the same motivation we have for creating a holiday newsletter; we get to share the news without having to write and re-write it 50 times.Â
