“We become writers for any number of reasons, some of them out in the open, others covert. To validate ourselves, surely. To show our inner selves to the world while maintaining a discreet distance. To win respect. To touch people’s lives.
Underlying all of this is a purely artistic motive that generally impels us. We seek the sheer joy that comes of doing that which has not been done before. And once we’ve done it, and done it to our satisfaction, it’s time to do something else new.”
