Why do writers write? Answers to this questions fascinate me and of course they are as varied as their writers. I write to connect – I want people to read my work and I want them to react to it. Emotionally. Intellectually. Fortunately and unfortunately I have never been driven by the desire to make a lot of money from my writing. Fortunately, because a focus on commercial can distort decisions. Unfortunately, because probably one has to focus on making money in order to make money.
