I don't write because I enjoy it. I don't write because it's fun. Honestly, it's so rarely fun. Other words come to mind: satisfying, intense, engaging, maddening, absorbing, surprising. But not fun. Having written is another story. That spent feeling at the end of a long writing day, a day in which one has wrung out every last bit of what was possible, that feeling, I'd wager, is part of what we writers live for.
