Valuing Creative Work

Heather, I did! Thank you for asking.

It's so great to have someone to talk to about my creative pursuits because it seems as if I put in all my creative energy into work that no one reads, sees, or enjoys. Life as a writer without an audience is lonely.

You are right (of course!!) about the value of the work. Its value is in its creation, in the doing, not in the selling.

It's taken me a long time and many, many (many!) unpaid publication credits to see that firsthand.

Thanks for the thinking of me.
