What do you do when you feel like nobody cares about your writing? I'm asking from an unpublished, inexperienced writer's perspective. You've changed and inspired many people's lives with your work, so I don't imagine this is your situation. But when you're starting out and nobody knows you, the though of reaching at least one reader and make a positive contribution in their lives is sometimes enough of a motivation through the long, lonely process of writing. So how do you find motivation?
When I was first starting out as a writer it was only the love of writing that kept me going. Writing is lonely but writing also kept me company. The characters I created kept me company. Wanting to tell new stories or offer my perspective on this world we live in motivated me. Wanting to be seen and heard motivated me. But mostly, it was just the love of writing.
