No one cares if I write.
No one’s waiting for me to publish my next essay.

Thanks to Scott Pierce for sharing this on Facebook. I understand how this author feels. While I’m not sure that I felt that my vocation was to be a writer, I knew that I always felt I had something to say, and just want to be heard. Technical writers especially feel this pain. We often half-jokingly talk about our profession being one in which nobody–or very few–read what we write. I think the digital age and the way digital marketing works had changed that a bit, but it’s still not completely off course. We write because there is a need to do it, whether it’s from an external or internal means. We do it to celebrate the ability to communicate. What do you think?
