It's a tricky, loaded question, but I always answer it with one of my own: "Do you want to get published and be paid for it, or are you not really concerned about other people buying and reading your book?" Most people respond that they want to get their work published, have people read and enjoy it, and make a few bucks in the process.

Who killed adult curiosity?
Velvet Chainsaw Consulting
As young children, curiosity made us jump in a mud puddle. Try to catch fireflies. And chase our shadows. It was our motivation for learning and play.
