Humans are interesting creatures. We engage in a variety of activities: some for the purpose of receiving remuneration, others with the goal of social acclaim in mind, a number which add to our personal leisure and a few which allow us to better the world around us. It is likely, I’m sure, that individuals have other reasons for partaking in a particular activity and that these reasons may overlap. All this is applicable to those who choose to pursue activities such as writing. As for me? I write because I don’t believe I’d be able to do much else.
