Why Do You Write???

Somebody asked me, “Why do you write?”

There is nothing out there.
It’s cold. It’s dark. It’s lonely. It’s the real world.

In the days before GPS, a sailor could easily get lost at sea when he loses his bearings. In the dark of a moonless night though, the flash of a distant lighthouse can point you in the right direction. With that beacon you can keep moving forward.
