What sustains? What brings us back to the seat, pen in hand?
Writing narratives, art in general, brings with it a sense of freedom. It is a dream of living sustained both materially and spiritually by the creative mind.
But it is also the hope of connection.
To write a narrative that connects, that brings others to a sense of wonder or enjoyment, is also a goal for many.
Dreams of fame are always there, but it is the promise of connection that keeps us all coming back.
