Thirty Word Thursday



Bret Easton Ellis, on Why You Write:

You do not write a novel for praise, or thinking of your audience. You write for yourself; you work out between you and 
your pen the things that intrigue you.

This is a really neat post. But now you guys are making me have to think whether I want to join the crew of Thirty Word Thursday or not. What's next? Forty word Friday? Sixty word Sunday? :D
