Why I should keep writing

23 01 2013
Look what I got in my inbox this morning, sent from someone in Saudi Arabia:
“I am not sure whether or not you are the one who wrote the wonderful story “A Lonely Astronaut,” from the ‘Tough Times Fro Teens’ book of the Chicken Soup for the Soul series. The story, however, touched my heart and soothed my soul in a very positive way.”
 
This is what I hope to do, and for that matter, what I believe all artists ultimately want to do– to affect other people, to bring out some sort of emotional impact in people.  It’s comments like these that encourage me to keep writing when I doubt myself.  It’s comments like these that show I’m at least doing something right.
Thank you.

I couldn’t agree more. The satisfaction gained from having the reader respond, and say they were moved by your work, inspires me to keep going.
