Purpose: To share and encourage. Writers can express doubts and concerns without fear of appearing foolish or weak. Those who have been through the fire can offer assistance and guidance.

What I am trying to do is just enjoy the journey.
I love creating my stories, my characters. My worlds. I love surprising readers with an unexpected twist. So what if I'm not a New York Times bestseller. Or even an Amazon bestseller (well, I am but only on some of the side categories).
It really doesn't matter because that's not why I do what I do.

Why do you write (or whatever art you make)?
