The Love Of Writing
Writing isn't something I have to do, as
some writers claim. Writing is something I love to do.
It's something that makes me feel good and creative and when I'm
finished a piece of writing, no matter how big or small, it's a
wonderful feeling. When I finished my first book, it felt like heaven.
When the publisher called to say they were sending my advance check, it
felt surreal. When I finally held the book finished and with cover, I
felt outside myself and have continued to feel that way with each
manuscript and work.
I know that if I was in a circumstance
where I had no writing impliments, I might find myself pulling a de Sade
and write with wine on a sheet. I've never pushed it to that point
and don't know if my head would explode or not. Madness might be
each writer's fate should we fail to get it down, but I think it's
more about love.
