Ray Bradbury On the Joy of Writing

3 07 2017

“You write to please yourself. You write for the joy of writing. And then your public reads you and it begins to gather around…The enthusiasm, the joy itself draws me — so that means, every day of my life, I’ve written. When the joy stops, I’ll stop writing.”

I love that you’re writing here again! Regarding your post, I wonder if this feeling could be expanded to other ‘things’ we find joy in? Just pondering….
