Writing is selfish. In writing an author says. “this blank space is mine to fill up. Mine to dirty.” In writing an author says, “here, let me post up my thoughts for anyone to see. My thoughts are important, my ideas need to be set free.” Writing is needy. it is for the hungry people looking to be filled up. Yet writing is for the generous. For those who seek to share, to contribute, to collaborate, to give. Writing is ambitious, for those who are reaching for something far out in the distance. Writing is content, for those who want nothing to do with the world beyond their walls. Writing is filled with anger and hate, with joy and love, with pride and with shame. Writing is complex.
Writing is not simple
