What’s your reason for writing?
Is it because writing is a passion, is it because you just have to; there’s no keeping it back, because the story just won’t leave you alone?
I suppose every author has some driving force to write…and those who think it’s money; unless your name happens to be STEPHEN KING, most of us are not rolling in the cash.
My reasons for writing are simple, it gives me an outlet for things I don’t want to talk about, or helps work out problems I’m dealing with. It’s funny but for me it’s a lot easier to deal with something if it’s not ME. Now that doesn’t mean I’ve EVER had to deal with a drug lord or being shot, or hell even living in the 1800’s (I honestly don’t think I could go back to a time with no electronics…the thought makes me shudder.) But everyone has had to learn how to let go…whether its through death, or a break-up. We’ve all had to figure out how to keep going.
Writing is therapeutic it exercises the mind and the imagination…like I tell my nephew, imagination is YOU’RE very own t.v. the one only you can see!
Why do you write, come on you can share your reasons….
