Question For A Sunday Afternoon…

 

Suppose the literature/publishing angel or fairy deigned to gift you with a visit and in so doing announced to you that you would never be published.   Never, no matter how prolific your work or the indisputable excellence of your effort.   Based on this extremely hypothetical scenario, I pose this question:   If you were certain you would never make a dime off anything you wrote, would you continue to write and if so would your work be as all consuming to you then as it is now?

  1. Most writers, even those who began later in life, actually were writing internally for years. I don’t believe you’re a writer only when the ink hits the page. Writers are born. It’s like being left handed or having blue eyes, you bring into the world with you whether you piss it away or not. One thing is certain, it matters.
