As if I wasn't self conscious enough, I wilted a bit inside when I heard that line. She's not wrong. But after too long accepting that there's no point in blogging, it occurred to me that a stand-up routine is a bunch of jokes nobody asked you to tell. You could make a similar claim to any artistic endeavor, couldn't you? Yet people keep creating them and, lo and behold, they connect with someone. From there, word may spread, or not, but for most creators the connection is probably sufficient.
All of which is an internal monologue no one asked for justifying my intent to keep trying to write.
