WRITING IS LIKE PROSTITUTION

     While in an Internet chat room in year 2000 I “met” another writer whose nametag was Writerpowell. My tag name was Nylorac.

     Writerpowell had an interesting viewpoint on writing which he shared with me on December 23. He claimed it is not original to him:

Writerpowell: Nylorc, writing is like prostitution. First you do it for yourself, then for a few friends, then for money.

Nylorac  Whew, powell, you do have an interesting perception of writing.

Writerpowell: Thanks, Nylorac. I only do it for money.

     I still don’t know how to take his statement, except on face value.
