I love this. And I love Vonnegut. I’m obsessed with Slaughter House 5. I also fully embrace what he is saying here. I write because I love it and because it makes me feel better. It helps me manage emotions and make sense of thoughts. It helps me process relationships and disappointments. It adds to my spirit and I do it because I love it. Because art has value. If one day it makes me money then swell, but even if it does not, I will do it because it is beautiful and good for the soul. Writing is my favorite art and I will write until I am out of things to write about. At that point I may as well die for I prefer death to life without art. Cheers.
