Is your fiction or fantasy writing for children really political writing?
Does anyone read what you tweet? Does it matter? Does it in any way create change?
Do you have to be famous to have your writing noticed? What if your reason for writing is to create change? Is all writing political? Are children books political? Why do you write?
This list below comes from a prior post and it lists 4 reasons that George Orwell gave for why he wrote.
1. Sheer egoism. This is probably obvious but he also suggested that writers share this with scientists, artists, politicians, lawyers and others.
2. Aesthetic enthusiasm. This has to do with the beauty of the world.
3. Historical impulse. This is the need to let folks know the facts.
4. Political purpose. This, in part, is "the desire to push the world in a certain direction, to alter people's idea of the kind of society that they should strive after".
