Deep down inside? probably to get s.
There may have been a time when I had the misconception about writing for the public because someone else could benefit from knowing they are not going through a particular experience alone. That is true to some extent. At a deeper level, I benefit as well. It is a journey of transformation for me.
A kindred spirit who is as convinced as I am that this tale must be told.
Myself! I think I am funny. (Oh, shut up.)
I guess I have to admit, me. However, since I can't stop craving readers, I try to write what I would like to read, and hope there's somebody out there who might enjoy it and "get it."
I write because it's the only thing that always works under any circumstance everything else and the world and god and people and me aside. I love it.
I don't write for anyone in particular. If I do, it is a special need to express my thoughts regarding someone special to me.
I am always prompted from an inspiration, right out of the blue. I wrote for example, "A Welsh RareBite" while my wife and I were driving to New Jersey from Florida. It began with a cell call from a friend whose niece had just a liittle boy who was chosen to represent an infant Dracula for the BBC Children's Television. He was three months old and had to join the Actor's Union to appear in the film. The humour of the story drove me to write a small poem, together with photos, about the baby vampire, whose actual name was Osian, a very unusual Welsh name. I still chuckle when I think of the way the poem developed. I also was driven to write a poem in remembrance of my son, Mark, who passed away suddenly at 50 years of age. A parent is not supposed to bury his child.
Me, and I really believe any writer who tells you any different is fooling themselves.
Myself. At the end of the day, no matter what peoples' opinions are of what I write, good or bad, I need to love it and love writing it.
O thats easy. Deep down and even on the surface, I write for myself.
Deep down, I write to express my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences to the world outside. I am very existential in my world view. Communicating to the other 6 billion people in the world would be a wonderful thing, like sharing a fragrance with them would be.
Most for me, but some I think have messages that might be of interest to other folks.
