What the Heck?

There are tons of sources for writers published or on the fence.
For those newly published, like yours truly, to a book reviewed or bought is a major chore and ALL of us self-published authors need sources.
I found a source on Facebook, Writers Helping Writers and then I went to the webpage and joined, happy to get information without depleting my budget.
That's another thing:  the cost for most resources, classes or workshops, are ridiculous and writers, as I hear, unless they are famous bestsellers, don't have the funds to keep said sites fed and housed without doing without food and shelter.
What the Heck?

This article lists reasons for why we write and what drives our desire to publish. I find that I suffer from Muse-overwhelm, self-loathing, self-awareness, creativity and just plain curiosity.
