Several presenters asked the following question: Why do you write? I thought it would be interesting to find out why everyone writes. I admit this is somewhat selfish of me because I really could use the inspiration right now (but I doubt I'm the only one who could be lifted up from other people's examples).
Here's my answer to the question: Why do you write? I write because:
- I have stories to tell.
- I like the sense of accomplishment I feel after finishing a first draft.
- It's a rush of excitement when characters or scenes write themselves.
- When I'm not writing, I can't stop thinking about my characters.
- Even though it's hard at times, I really enjoy writing.
So now it's your turn: Why do you write?
