I'm Getting Older, Too......



"I really don't care if anybody buys it, and I really don't care if everybody steals it. What I need is to make a record for me, the artist." 

Stevie Nicks, about her new album (from The Boston Globe, 5-7-11)



I guess I have something in common with Stevie Nicks besides the big, blond hair.  

I don't write for the book sales.

I don't write for the publishers or the agents or the editors.

I don't write for the reviews.

I don't write for the awards.

I don't write for the bestseller lists.

I don't write for the money.


I write for me.

OH, Stevie. A fine hair inspiration as well as an artistic one.

Penelope said...

Me, too, Amber! I especially love this song. It always makes me cry.

Penelope said...

Hi Carolyn! Big hair always inspires me. Stevie. Jon Bon Jovi (from the 1980's), etc etc. I like her "screw all yinz, I'm doing this for me!" attitude. She is such a kick!

I write for you too, sweetie. I love Stevie Nicks.
I write because I gotta write. That's it. No other reason.

Penelope said...

Julia.....you are so sweet! Thanks for writing for me...hee hee! Here's my "unpopular" reason I write...because it's fun. Otherwise, I wouldn't freakin' do it. I have never actually heard ANY other writers admit this.
