rite with a mission in mind: Write what only you can write. Write with passion. Don't write to sell the piece. Don't write to make a living. Don't write to become famous. Write because no one else will – or can – write what you wrote.
Write because your characters long to live. Write because, if you don't write, they will haunt you the rest of your days. Write because otherwise the world will not ever read what you're about to record.
Write because of all the billions of people who have ever lived and ever will live, you were chosen to tell the tale. Tell the tale. ~~ Ginger Hamilton (Caudill)
