A Brenner/Gowing Thought ~~ Part Two: Why We Write

While reading the new book we are both currently working on to review (Stay tuned!), one specific quote truly spoke to us.  It explained why we write.  Why we put words out for people to read, put ourselves out there.  This is our goal, our purpose, what we desire to achieve through our passion for writing.  This is our hope.

This is why we love it.

“It’s in the listener, and for each and every ear it will be different, and it will affect them in ways they can never predict. From the mundane to the profound. You may tell a tale that takes up residence in someone’s soul, becomes their blood and self and purpose. That tale will move them and drive them and who knows what they might do because of it, because of your words. That is your role, your gift.” – Erin Morgenstern- The Night Circus
