Do you write because you have to - because you must? Do you write to make sense of the world?
Is writing for publication then a very different thing?
If you, like me, ponder these things - this great article entitled 'Because I do', by Shauna Gilligan is a must-read.
.....creativity doesn’t care about ego. It just is. We create stories – write fiction – in order to make sense of our world. Because what it really means to be a writer is to live and be vulnerable. To have the capacity for hope and disappointment; to reflect this in your writing. To be that mirror of emotion and action.
