I Write Because…

I write because …

…I locked my favorite pen away many years ago and chose to forget where I kept the key. And now that I have rediscovered it, I’ll never lock it away again;

…The stories and characters that live in me need to be set free;

…I love being the puppet master to what my characters don’t say and don’t do;

…Writing is a pure and simple pleasure that simultaneously makes time stand still and the hours fly by;

…Writing soothes and quiets my soul.

I write because life is just a story and I’ve got a pen.

Why do you write? What keeps inspiring you?

    I write for the joy it brings me in sharing the silly anecdotes of my day to day life… to document my journey in this world so that I can reflect on days past and on what is yet to come.

    Writing…It’s my weapon of choice. It’s therapeutic, necessary, liberating and a language I enjoy speaking…

  6. I love this! I love how you put your words together.
    I write because my brain needs relief from all the stories and ideas being crowded inside. I write because it calms my spirit and it’s my passion. I live and breathe it.

  7. I write to silence the incessant voices. The stories, the alter-egos, the lives never lived…

    I write because it encapsulates the beauty and the darkness that’s both within my mind and without; to be seen all around us.

    Writing, to me, is more than just a hobby. It’s more than just a prospective career. It’s everything and then some more.

    Writing is my life.
