No one chooses to be a writer,
not when the process is lonely.
And these days, 
quickly overtaken by the
self-marketing, the self-promotion, and the self-branding –
even the self-loathing.
Because if you neglect to do those
non-writerly things, no one will know
who you are – or care
And still the writer will do all that and continue to write anyway,
because her Soul will die if she doesn’t –
little by little
every single day.

Got something to say? Spill the beans!
