Why are you a writer? / Memorable Fancies #1309

.. To become rich and famous, will settle for rich-only if

you have to.

.. To have adoring fans and pick up English majors in bars.

.. To propagate your opinions (but no one else cares).

.. To express your innermost feelings (ditto).

.. To find out what happens in the story.

.. To develop, exercise, and improve a difficult skill.

.. To be admired by other writers (there are less-hazardous ways to do this).

.. To become a cult idol frequently interviewed on TV and featured in supermarket tabloids along with aging ex-stars.

.. To be critiqued, because you are a masochist.

.. To show off (ok, is that all of us? or what?)
