“There are three reasons for becoming a writer:
the first is that you need the money;
the second that you have something to say that
you think the world should know;
the third is that you can’t think what to do with the long winter evenings.”

Quentin Crisp

  1. My favorite reason is the second. The first and third are more indulgent, but there really is something about knowing that you have to share something with the world. I love this quote, and as someone with a literary blog, I’m so thankful that you shared it.

I'd love to know what you thought about this post!
