Whatever you may think of gonzo journalist Hunter S. Thompson, he certainly elicits reactions. Him and his writing. Recently, I was pointed to a quote by Thompson at a time when he probably was still considering his career. And while I don’t believe in ‘fate,’ I think he’s onto something.
A writer writes because he just can’t not write.
“As things stand now, I am going to be a writer. I’m not sure that I’m going to be a good one or even a self-supporting one, but until the dark thumb of fate presses me to the dust and says, ‘you are nothing,’ I will be a writer.” Hunter S. Thompson
For the past two weeks, ‘life’ and being a little under the weather have kept me away from blogging as I’d have liked to, but writing is never far from my mind. In fact, ideas are always rolling around in my brain like little ball bearings. Next week, I hope to get back to my regular schedule. Thanks for hanging in there with me. For those writers who plug along no matter what, I applaud you.
As for me, once in a while I have to make a pit stop for fuel.
