I Don’t Want To Be Famous

Tom Smith wrote a song called “I want my music on Napster.”, back when Napster was a file sharing service Tom is a Filk singer with several compellations to his name. Filk is a genre of music attached to the SF&F community. I have been told the word came from a misprint of the word Folk in a con book. Any mistake worth making is worth utilizing.

This song has the line, “I don’t want to be famous, I want to be know.” and this is exactly how I have always felt about my stories. I don’t seek fame or fortune, I just wish for readers. Sure the money would have a use, but there are few authors that actually make money.

The reason that I write is to tell my stories, and try to reach an audience that enjoys them as well. Perhaps to inspire another to tell their story as well.
