The Question

Therefore, my dear friend, I know of no other advice than this: Go within and scale the depths of your being from which your very life springs forth.  At its source you will find the answer to the question, whether you must write.  Accept it, however it sounds, without analyzing.  Then accept that fate; bear its burden, and its grandeur, without asking for the reward, which might possibly come from without.
