Friends have asked me why I write? Is it for fun? Is it to give knowledge, wisdom? Is it to show off my skill with English words? Or is it to become famous and seek attention?
The answer to each question is "yes". It is a little mix of everything. There is a selfish reason, as well as a selfless reason.
When I write, I select a topic. The selection of topic takes a little time - around 5 minutes. Once that is done, I finish the entire writing in around 15 minutes on that topic. The internal joy that I feel when I finish a topic is that even I am unaware of the flow of the topic, and it's final outcome. As I write on my iPhone, I ensure I am undisturbed till I finish. The greatest joy in my writings is those approximately 15 minutes of bliss when I am stripping the topic from all angles to give it a positive outcome. I view positivity by the yardstick of giving motivation, giving knowledge, and/or bringing peace. When I achieve the selfless motive of it being a guide to someone, enriching life, and bring a smile on the face, my selfishness gets merged into selflessness, and I simply enjoy the depth of writing.
