This morning I read an article about cookbook ghostwriters by New York Times Food columnist Julia Moskin–a former cookbook ghostwriter herself.  She talked about the ups and downs of the job: dealing with difficult chefs, condescending restaurant managers and jealous spouses– and she was honest about what a thankless job ghostwriting often is.

Yet despite what was mostly a negative article, she reminded me of why I write–why anyone writes–and she reminded me of why I started this blog.  It’s not about the notoriety or how marketable the content is.  It’s about the craft, the passion, and the deep desire to sit down at the end of the day and share what is on my heart and my mind.  If someone chooses to read it, great. If not, I’ll still come away feeling heard. That’s the magic of putting thoughts on paper (or the Internet).

So what do I want to say tonight? Tonight, I’d simply like to remind a world that works so hard to gain fame and wealth that the best things in life are the things you do simply for the love of it.
