BardVERSE: What do you find most gratifying about writing?

Rachel/Ms.Novak: When I can lose myself in my writing but also be understood, I feel gratified.  Hours and hours can pass. I can problem solve, use words in a different way, and learn. When I get into the flow of an essay, I can exhaust myself.
