Meta Musings

I read an interesting article the other day about places people write from, motivations for writing, that sort of thing. The author of the article said that in general people either write to repair their psyche, or because they have a story to tell. (Yes, I am paraphrasing like a bandit.)

I asked another person about the article and they were less precise; over their shoulder, they tossed: writers write. For this person, that was all it came down to.

Who is correct? Does it even matter?

I don't know.

What I do know is that I have a villain (throne stealing cousin), a princess (abducted at birth and raised in a country not her own), and now I need a hero to set things to rights. Any suggestions?
