Hmmmm? I dunno A.L. but you sound an awful lot like my editor(s) at HarperCollins when they tried to suggest that good/great work will always find a much deserved home. NO. THAT IS SIMPLY NOT TRUE! I have some talent. I kept writing and working hard and . . . wait for it . . . W A I T for it... I GOT LUCKY!!! The right agent got my novel in the right editor's hands at the right time for all of us! LUCK!!

I do like your conclusion, DON'T STOP WRITING but not because we're doing the world a favor; don't stop b/c by writing you somehow become whole, that and only that is the reason to keep going. xoxo
