Writing means a lot of different things to a lot of people. It can be a release. It can be a way to pay the rent. It can be a way to exact revenge on a nemesis without actually committing a crime. But to all of us, it means something--otherwise, we wouldn't carve time out of our busy schedules to do it.
So my Q to you is: What Does Writing Mean to You?
To be fair, it's important that I put myself out there as well so here it goes:
To me writing means ... a way to entertain myself and others (and to forget that I have a fairly large overdue phone bill sitting on my counter).
