“I’ve written because it fulfilled me… I did it for the pure joy of the thing. If you can do it for joy, you can do it forever.”
I love to write, always have. I kept a journal before I could write in cursive and recall in Kindergarten, when a poet came to talk to our class and read to us, asking him how you knew you were writer. “If you’re a writer, you write,” said he.
I enjoy writing so much, I even write about… writing. These offerings are mostly in the form of a writer’s newsletter (sign up here) or brief essays on craft. I believe that any kind of creative self-expression is good for us, so if you’re inclined to take up the figurative pen, have at it! The world will never have enough well-told stories, and nobody can tell your story as well as you can.
