I have felt the internal part of writing before.
Not in a random blog post, mind you, but in something personal.
For instance, I wrote: This Is What I Remember About My Grandfather
It was less about what I wrote – the result of it all.
And more about the simple fact that I felt better after it had come out.
My series on Saudi Arabia was the same.
About 90 percent of the reason I write is for what it does on the inside of my life, and about 10 percent for what it produces on paper.
