I write a lot, and my sole drive in doing so is to have stories captured in print that I can enjoy any time I wish. Is there a more selfish motive for being a writer? I'm not sure, but it works for me. I'm currently taking a break from new writing [it's easy to get burnt out] to focus on editing some stories that I'd penned some time ago. It's interesting to go back and see how much I've matured even over the past couple of years. I feel that I'll always have room to grow, and it's important to always make things better, to go back and make changes and shoot a little more for perfection each time. It doesn't matter if anyone will ever read it or not. I'll know, and I'll enjoy each story a little bit more the next time around.
