It is National Small Business Week this week May 16-20, 2011. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), states more than half of Americans either own or work for a small business and account for 60 to 80 percent of new jobs in the country.
The business of writing not only accounts for writers as business owners, it covers the other individuals along the way that have a part in sharing the business transactions.
There are many wonderful movies, plays and other entertainment that come from one writer, one writer that chose to make a business decision.
Lastly, readers benefit from the business, by having options of what to buy, styles of writing to choose from and conversation topics.
With this, I say we celebrate National Small Business Week and contribute to helping our economy. By writing, paying an editor, submitting to contests, agents, newsprint, blog sites and other media we are helping to employ someone.
