Why write? The same reason a kicker in futbol continues to press forward, using his energy to do foot tricks that most times only leads him close enough…but not to a score.
He does it because of the possibility and in some cases the inevitability that the right speed, the right angle, the right force and the right effort…will lead to the announcer saying “Gooaaaaal.”
For you, for me & for all others who enjoy writing, that footwork is replaced by a pen (most cases a keyboarz) & the movement is the words that come from your thoughts and lights up a page in a way that most people will find invisible.
However, you continue to wrote because just maybe, the right person(s) comes along and witnesses, reads, absorbs those words on that page in a way that literally…changes their life.
