I don't aim to be a Shakespeare or a Dickinson. Just write from my heart. It is a treasured gift that I don't believe I'd have if I didn't have my constant companion of Autism. If there was some magic bottle that could take it away, I don't think I'd take it. Not if I had to give up my compensation.
Couldn't have said it better myself! I write better than I speak.
