I write because I can’t help myself.
I write to think about deeper meanings, to make connections between my world and the vast world out there.
I write because I am compelled to write. At times it is a need I must fill, an itch I must scratch.
I write to make sense of the jumble of thoughts.
I write to inform, to compel, to impact.
I write to influence, to encourage, to embolden, to strengthen – myself and others.
I write to pass on what I’ve been given.
I write to make hard things easier, to explain and to mediate and to bridge the gaps in life.
I write to express aspects of myself that are otherwise hidden.
Why do you write?
