So what is the writer's role in that relationship? What resonsiblities does one take on when they decide to call themselves a writer? I wrote many essays in school about the responsiblities a scientist accepts, the social contract that they sign when agreeing to serve society. I have never considered what the social contract is for a writer and society? Do I even want to give myself that sort of title, that resonsiblity?
The fact is I have always loved writing, I have notebooks filled, I write stories in my head before I fall asleep, I find inspiration to write in the oddest places. When I first started working on this blog, was really the first time I put my writing out there for anyone to read. I still never considered myself a blogger or a writer, it was just a hobby, a way for me to hold myself to a higher standard. A way for me to focus on the beautiful, brillant things in life when I just wanted to hide from the world and the challenges I was being given.
Thank you for helping me hold myself to that higher standard, thank you for engaging in this intimate exchange of information. For allowing me a part of whatever you create while you read my words.
