I have read immensely about self publishing and I have yet to arrive at the technicalities involved in self publication. I will indeed learn them in due course of time and what i want to learn now is the fact that self publication can be a monetary reward also. I have written lots of poems, short stories and essays. I do not know as to how I can publish it across a lot of people. I am really optimistic about the fact that I can publish myself aggressively and at the same time get paid. Money is not the ultimate satisfaction or the only reward good writers crave for yet writers are humans too not robots and money plays a role in fact a very vital one in his life and therefore to be rewarded monetarily is my intention too. Thinking that this site will educate me on this issue too. A writer has to pass lots of time on creativity and of course one's prospects are not sure and one cannot bloom in the profiteering domain.
