Why I Still Write


The reason I am still writing is simple:  it matters.  Even after forty years plus I am still at it.  In the beginning, it was letters, then journals now my blog.


There has always been someone else out there who I was writing for even if that person never read the piece–at least one person.


An audience is important; but nevertheless I write for me.  Sometimes I solve problems, others times I focus my concerns.  I am aware that writing is one big way by which I express myself.


Through out the years there always has been an invisible audience.  Sometimes there was only one but that was enough.


I am always reaching out to that audience and I can not always tell you who they are but I do.  The only important thing I need to know:  it still matters so I continue to write.
