You know how much I love Seth Godin, right?
Well, I love his post from yesterday, because it directly relates to what we--as writers--do. He's talking about the ones who create. Those who are brave enough to make something then send that creation out into the world.
Forget the critics. Forget the naysayers. The world needs us. It would miss us if we were gone.
The full post is short and sweet and can be read here. It's called The Initiator.
Now go forth and create.
