#16: For love or money: what motivates you to write?

In this episode of the Write for Your Life podcast I chat with Manuela Boyle about why we write and what motivates people to start scribbling. I have to add that I do take the conversation into a discussion about self-publishing, and I'm not sure I explain my points very clearly, but I promise you I always mean well! Big thanks to our contributions from Twitter too, where various people offered their thoughts on what motivates them to write. Kudos to: @oliminnwrite @amahnke @matthew_mella @b3n3llis @davecaolo @smarterbits @bubblecow @revhappiness @imyke @cptnrandy @patrickrhone.

Finally, Manuela talked about her favourite thing this week, which is poet Heather Christie who has offered potential buyers the chance to phone her up and get a poem read over the telewaves! Marvellous.
