What does writing mean to you?

Writing

Well. Here we are again my friends. So let me ask you this: what does writing mean to you?

To me it’s the obvious cliched reason. Because I want to write, because I choose to express myself. Because it’s a hobby I love.

But there is more, much more. The truth is, it’s therapeutic, it’s good for the soul. Yes. For example, when everyone on this site asked me to write a book from a genre they voted on, I answered the call.  Not for personal gain, not for fame, but for the sake of giving back.

In the end a writer needs to write what is interesting to them. But they also have to listen to the people who visit their blog, who take the time to read their posts and leave precious comments. Because every voice counts.

So here we are. Just two days before Guns And Dogs is released. A book that was really about my own struggles as a person, but written for all of you. There is a lot of me in this book. Just like all the others before. But as I mentioned earlier, I wouldn’t have it any other way.

The greatest joy in life is to give something back to society. To leave your mark so you know you lived a productive life. Not for personal gain, or fame, but because it’s the right thing to do. I’m going to indulge in a cliche here but it truly is better to give than receive.

So now we come to the end of another blog post. Guys, it’s been fun outlining and writing Guns And Dogs. And I couldn’t of done it without you.  Thank you for coming here, thank you for leaving comments, but most of all, thank you for reminding me what writing truly means to me.

Giving back.
