A while ago, if people were to ask me why I write (which they didn't), I would say that I love writing and was probably born to be a writer. While that is true enough to some extent, I don't think it really satisfies the question. So, here I am to address it and seek a better answer.
I write to give voice to my thoughts.
I write to give voice to my feelings.
I write to make a difference in the world.
I write to seek forgiveness from the people I have wronged and who have left me without warning.
I write to find solace and steadiness when I myself am swaying.
I write to put a distance between me and my weakness for the Darkness.
I write to protect my heart from the evil deeds people are capable of committing.
I write to let out my anger and frustration.
I write to shower the world with love and kindness.
I write to escape the real world into one of creative reality.
So, I think that's it--ten reasons why I write. Do we need some more? I can't think of any.
But, what about you? Why do you write?
