We do it mostly for ourselves and to let our wild imagination be expressed instead of banging on our heads from the inside, maybe.

Today, I just broke through my writer's block and wrote probably my favorite part of my entire fic. I realized that there isn't a feeling like that and I get a certain rush when I write, a rush that I want to feel again and again. But the most important thing I realized, is that starting college wanting to become a mechanical engineer might not be the best thing for me. I realized that writing might just be the thing I want to do for the rest of my life.
    There's nothing to stop you two doing both. In fact, it's probably better for someone who wants to write to have another, more applicable skill; writers have bills to pay and food to buy as much as anyone else, and they don't make much money. We'd all like to be writers and just writers - but success of even the minor sort is hard to come by in that world, and it's much more realistic to keep on going towards something else in the meantime. Something that will provide an income.

    I have zero expectation of ever attaining any measure of success at all in any field of art; that doesn't mean I'm not going to try. It just means that I'm going to have to do something else in the meantime, and write at the weekends and at midnight.

    Nope. That's been going on since last year; the story I'm referring to there is only a few days old, and not even fully formed in my mind. It's pretty different from anything I've written before, and I'm not sure I even have the skill to write it yet - but that's not going to stop me from trying.

    Thank you. It does get weirder. As is so often the case, the fish is not all that it seems to be.
