Reasons to Write or Not

1. Struggling with the final typos in my new book, I am wondering why I write at all.
2. The truth is that I have written my way through a large part of my life, and yet my next book
is calling me even more than the one that is barely launched, It's Only Raven Laughing.
3. My new book, Too Personal for Words, is written from a freer part of my persona. It approaches aging with humor and sometimes frustration and fear. It looks back at
events in my life that I have not been able to face until recently.
4. I write because I have to. For you it may be painting or collecting, or placing another pin
in your travel map that keeps you motivated. I have other interests too, but it is here with my worn Mac that makes each day feel complete.
