"He seemed pleased, and glanced down at me in the chair. 'How are you doing?' I told him fine, 'I'm still writing.'
He said, 'What else is there?'"
--Donald Hall, Essays After Eighty
What else is there? An interesting question for writers to ponder.
For me, "what else" includes hiking, and reading, and time with friends. But without writing, something big would be missing.
