“Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self.” Cyril Connolly
This is a quote I often ponder. How do I keep my writing from being just another needle in the haystack? (An obvious answer is to stop writing clichés.)
I understand the concept of writing for an audience from journalism school, but does that mean selling out? I don’t think whore writing is a literary term.
You can’t live life without being true to yourself so why should writing be different?
