Why would a person need "forgiveness" for being a writer? Are you 
dispensing forgiveness to all us writers? Would you also forgive musicians 
too, since they are even more prehistoric than writers?

Isn't writing, any sort of writing whether digitised or otherwise, an art form?

What a strange and condescending post.

Please forgive me for writing this question.
