Now that I'm nearly done with editing, I started exploring the how-to of publishing on Kindle. I have to say that initially, it's baffling. There are so many options and so many opinions about what options are best. As I sifted through the opinions, I realised that I had to make a major decision.
What is my motive?
It seems a lot easier to come up with a motive for a character to do something in a story than to find one's own underlying motive. It's the same old story with any creative process whether it be writing, painting, photography, acting... We all want praise.
How do I measure praise?
Is it by the noise of the applause or the balance in the bank?
