What is more important to a writer? To be read or to just write. I write about everyday. Send it out on WordPress. Hope it gets through to somebody. And then disappointed when I see my numbers are low. Two, three readers a day maybe. Send it through Twitter. Makes no difference; have people stopped reading? Or, am I not a good writer?
To me writing is cathartic. It’s a therapy. I do it because I have to. And, feel guilty for wanting more readers. The work is what’s important, I tell myself. But, my ego wants more. I want to be noticed. Maybe this is the life of the artist; the struggle with the ego. It is for me.
