Maybe some of us don’t write because they can’t.
Look who’s talking!
It’s not the writing style only that appeals to me. And I definitely don’t consider myself a writer. It’s just the insight that is offered into how someone may view the world so that I have an opportunity to either relate, or to obtain a fresh perspective. In a strange way, it affords me a connection with others that has been rare in my real life. So I guess it’s a selfish indulgence. Me wanting to connect with others in a way that isn’t normally possible given the social prejudices and constraints that prevent it otherwise.
