Why continue writing at all? Especially after New Year’s.

New Year can mean there is a spike in divorces, according to one lawyer. Does it also mean a spike in giving up vocations,  jobs, employment or gigs as well?

One may feel like giving it the job away after a nice relaxing holiday. They call this the back to work blues or something like that. If you’re in a day job, you may quit and do something else, or keep on keeping on with the job you wished you loved, because you like the staff and not the job itself.

On the other end, if one doesn’t have commitments in writing, why continue writing at all?

There are writers who have commitments. I mean, they got to write and set goals because that’s expected of them, by the publisher, if they enjoy doing this or not. For these people, it pays the bills, as they say.

What’s the point of writing if you have no commitments like these? Why doesn’t one throw it in?

For the writer who is not stuck to any employer or publisher, here are three reasons to keep on going when there seems no point: One writes for their own satisfaction, three times over. And one may do some good along the way, for someone out there.
