Author Interview: Dennis Lehane (2)

Great advice from Dennis Lehane: Write because you want to, not because someone is expecting you to or watching you or keeping tabs on you. Because, well, nobody cares whether you’re good or not, or whether you publish or not. Nobody cares! But you should!

Write for the right reasons, not because you want people say how great you are, but because you love it.

You as a writer are lucky to be able to step away from reality and step into the world you‘ve created. Not all people have that.

It’s so-so true. 🙂
