do you still want to be a writer?

Yes, although nowadays, I almost care less about the words and more about the impact of the words. Growing up, my writing was very self-centered and focused on the mere idea of writing (the perfect combination of words)... now my idea of writing is based on "How will this affect everyone who reads it? How can I describe this so effectively that people leave moved, more self-aware, or changed? How can I write a sentence so that other people will gain from it (rather than just my ego)?"

So there's been a lot less poetry and a lot more blogging and memoir. And I'm not sure how long that will last. We'll see :)

Ask me anything
