Bonnie Hearn Hill’s essay “What I wished I’d Known,” in Writer Magazine addresses the loneliness, the doubts, but also the triumph of writing fiction.
Hill says (of writers):
“We do it because we can’t not do it, riding that bicycle up the mountain, calves screaming in pain, the road nipping at our heels…we will get to the top, and that’s the reason we do it…We do it for that blast of oxygen in our lungs, the certainty of the finish line. We do it for the ride down the hill, that sweet sense of soaring.”
