Writing a book, or a piece of literature, is the creative act of giving birth to life – and is no more or less precious than the birth of a child. When you write a book, a poem, or a play, you are giving life, glorious, magnificent life to an idea. An idea that could, given the right circumstances, change the very world we live in.

But whether that idea lives a great life or dies a quiet death, depends on how many people are privy to it. The more love and attention it gets, the more the idea grows and develops. Without love and attention, the idea, no matter how valid or worthwhile, dies.
