Why we write.

I re-read a quote in my journal this morning that inspired me.

We write to experience life twice. Once in the moment, and once retrospectively.

I remind myself that it is more important to engage in the process of writing, without worrying about the products of that writing, than not to write at all.

I write today to teach, to tell a story, to clarify ideas.

I take one step up the sand dune, only to be moved three steps back down.

Today I am progress in press.

I believe in the potential of that progress in press to be in print.
