“When I sit down to write a book, I do not say to myself, ‘I am going to produce a work of art.’ I write it because there is some lie that I want to expose, some fact to which I want to draw attention, and my initial concern is to get a hearing.”
—George Orwell

There is a lot to say about how one falls into a life of writing and the purpose of our writing, besides. I’ve shared my own “why” for writing this week in the zine, S P A C E. When we write, why do we write? This was the topic for the issue,  S P A C E | ‘Something to Write Home About.’ More about my zine is at the crowdfunding page for it, and also, in the shop.

A quiet writing day
