…me is to actually write your book for me — and to do that, you must give a damn in the first place. Truly caring about your book means loving and respecting your reader. It means devoting yourself to them, and then letting that devotion fuel an obsession with getting your book just right.
Good gosh this was wonderful and exactly what I needed to hear. In order write (and finish) a book, you need to become obsessed with it. I can't imagine any other way of going through the grueling process of writing a book. And like you pointed out, having a genuine devotion and regard for your readers is a good way to drive that obsession.
