The Cost of a Calling (on writing)

Kelly Salasin

Writing is an expensive calling. And I’m not talking about the jobs we quit so that we could delve deeper into it.

Writing costs people. Relationships. Friends. Communities. Alma Maters. Even countries. (Frank McCourt could tell you about that.)

We do it anyway.

Why?

Not because we don’t give a fuck.

But because we do.

In the words of Natalie Goldberg, “We are writing because we love the world.”
