Why do you write?
What is your creative outlet?
I write to communicate, to practice organising my thoughts in a way that they can effectively transfer complex ideas from my mind to the minds of others.
I do that in an attempt to actively enhance the probability of security and freedom for sapient life generally (human and non-human, biological and non-biological) – which includes myself. And it is clear to me that in the longest term I can only have such freedom and security myself if I am part of creating it for sapience generally.
So I write, like I did yesterday (a little over 5,000 words in my longest post yesterday) – https://tedhowardnz.wordpress.com/money/
And I guess part of the impulse sending me down the path I have followed (and actively chosen) was being tongue tied and unable to communicate as a young child.
