Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.

    But the ultimate goal remains: to write for yourself and have a public as well as a healthy self!
    It is possible. Keep posting. I’m part of your audience!

  2. Thank you 🙂 yes, I agree that’s a worthwhile ultimate goal…

    …but the nitty-gritty is not compromising one’s writing to obtain that ultimate goal, and not making that the only “end” of one’s writing. “Publish or perish” can’t be entertained where creativity just wants to roar.

    I also am reminded of the many great writers, poets, etc wrote never knowing their work would be lauded – the public coming only after their passing.
