This is what it’s all about

I have really enjoyed all of the nice comments I have received about my entry at The Clarity of Night. Talk about giving me encouragement to do more writing! Particularly, Helen’s comments about my piece really make me feel good. Here is part of what she left in the comments:

“Thank you for making me laugh on a day where I’ve been a right old misery-guts (like your wife, I don’t want to read anything else that makes me cry…!)

That is what makes writing worthwhile. There is nothing better than bringing a smile to someone else’s face, even for a moment. There is my answer to the question “Why do I write?”. Thank you Helen. I encourage everyone to check out Helen’s blog, as I enjoy reading it every day.

Those who are sick of the talk about the contest, I will have an entry about the writing process here soon.
