Don't get me wrong.
I am happy with my writing "career"/ compulsion
I've always had the readers that I want to have. I imagine all of you when I write and thus I write to all of you every time.
A long, long time ago I thought perhaps that I was a writer who was teaching but after awhile I realized that I was/am a teacher who writes.
When we enter teaching we know we're not going to be rich or famous and we're good with that.
We try our hardest to do what we consider to be the best and most important job of them all. As we teach we learn.
If we are lucky, we make a bunch of friends along the way.
I am lucky.
I have friends who read my writing.
Those friends are all of you and that's all the fame and riches and motivation that I need or want.
This I have learned.
