As the late Anthony Abbott so eloquently says in this book, "Writing is not about writing, necessarily. Writing is about living. And the more deeply and fully you live, the more you are able to write."

There is hope in this book but there is also angst and humility. Case in point is a quote by New York Timesbestselling author John Hart, who says that the writing life is so unbelievably wonderful that he feels "deep down that the universe must have plans to take that all away." It makes him work even harder on his next book.

The writers quoted in these pages grab for their pens and fire up their computers for the love of writing. They have a common urge to create, to use letters, words, and sentences to tell stories, either about themselves, or others, or about characters they create in their writing chambers. They write for therapy or to understand themselves and the world around them. They write for the sake of writing. They write for publication. They write to be remembered. They write to be heard and understood. And as more than one author says, they write because they can't not write.
