Why I Write

When i think about why I write so many thoughts and reasons flood my mind, so here are a few.

I write because there are stories inside that need to be told, stories that need a voice, stories that need to be heard. When I don’t let them out they strain and push against the wall tries to keep them in.

Some days I write to feel joy or to take the pain from the inside and put it on the outside, to empty my mind and save room for something else.

I write in hopes that the stories I tell will make people laugh, cry, cheer, shout in anger or frustration, I hope they will fall madly in love or go mad with envy. When someone picks up my story, they can Β be transported from their realityΒ and live as someone else for awhile.

I write so when I tell others of my journey, they to can feel inspired to start their own.

  1. Well said! These are all the reasons I write, too.
    I think the one overarching theme is that I want to give back. When I read a book that I get lost in, and think about the characters during the course of my day, I want to give someone the same sensation of getting lost in another world. It’s a joy every time I read a great book, and I want to give other people the same.
