Serious Wednesday: The Craziness of Writing



On Passionate Writing

It is a writer's greatest pleasure
to hear that someone
was kept up until the unholy hours 
of the morn
reading
one of his books.
--B. Sanderson




Writing is the strangest
and most interesting,
besides the most misunderstood,
craziest and hardest
most frustrating--

yet satisfying talent--
or is it a curse?
career?
hobby?
job?
                                                                          purpose?

A writer will certainly dwell in stages of 
despair
discouragement
hopelessness

yet writing affords deep . . .
satisfaction and pleasure,
determination
happiness and joy 
by one act of a reader, in reading.

To the real writer, 
that is enough.


Blessings!
