Why do I write

An interesting post on a forum today made me think.

The post read… What makes a great writer?

What indeed. I thought about it and came to this conclusion; you could write just one line as a quote and be remembered for it long after your lifetime, or you could write ten or twenty novels in as many years and suddenly one novel will make the best seller list and you have arrived. The important thing is to keep writing.

When I was a textile artist I  would create in my head but  couldn’t rest until I had painted it with thread on canvas. Now I am a writer, I still create in my head but won’t rest until I have painted the ideas with words on paper.
