I think the importance of writing is not just to write well. I don’t think that the ultimate goal is to have a perfect book. Instead it’s about living a dream. About taking a step that many find scary. I think there’s some honor or bravery and taking that step. And I think it’s worthwhile to put something out there that will last for a little bit. I don’t know if anyone will read this blog, or any of my books, and that’s fine. At least I was willing to go ahead and try. And in the end that’s infinitely better than doing nothing at all. And that’s why I’m happy with the effort. Because any effort beats no effort.
