Who are you as a writer... why do you write? There are many reasons. Probably as many variations in reasons as there are writers. There are some basic reasons, but I find that the writing process is still highly personal for everyone. This is why each writer has their own voice. We are all unique and valuable. So...
How would you answer?
Do you write because you love it?
Is it therapy?
Is it a means to an end?
What do you get out of it?
What do you hope to gain?
What do you hope to provide?
So simple, yet so difficult for many of us to answer.
For me, I write for several reasons.
|Passion and beyond|
What do I get out of it?
I love touching lives. When my stories bring smiles to faces, or any other emotion that I've tried to express, my heart fills with satisfaction and excitement. I release my frustrations fears when I write. I capture my dreams and hopes. I escape to another world and experience the freedom that brings. When others can share in these things, I have done my job.
