Default Writing a book

There has been a lot of loose talk about writing books on this board lately. Before you do this thing consider:
There is virtually NO market for river books. Carefully consider your motivation. Do you want to preserve minor history? Do you want to lose money? Are you ready to PAY for publishing it? Are you prepared to write it, then re-write it, then make corrections? Can you obey an editor? Can you spell? Do you know the difference between an adverb and an adjective? Do you understand advertising and promotion? Are you ready and willing to spend at least a year on the project?
If your answer is "No," to any of these, then drop it like a red-hot horseshoe.
Signed,
Your fellow optimist.
