Many people have a compulsion to write. There is no law against it and doing it makes them happy while they do it and presumably relieves them.
A few things I have found to be true. If you leave out important things or events that you know about, the story is strengthened. If you leave out or skip something because you do not know it, the story will be worthless. The test of any story is how very good the stuff is that you, not your editors, omit.
