I’m an amateur writer – I only write for fun and personal entertainment. I’ve never been published and don’t really have any aspirations to get that far. I just like making stuff up. :)
I’ve also found I tend to have a dark outlook in my writing. It seems my inner cynic is the one holding the pen.
“Writing is like prostitution. First you do it for love, and then for a few close friends, and then for money.” — Molière
