We writers are a tenacious lot. Despite work, our social lives, family ties, and all the other intricacies that make up our lives we still choose to throw these things aside once a day (if we are lucky) to sit down and develop our craft. Why do we do this? What drives us? Why do we keep at it even when those close to us hover over our desks asking that unbearable question, “can’t you write later?”
The answers are innumerable. Why do I write? I write because I love stories. I write because I want to change lives. I write to remember. I write because I must. Each person is different and every answer is a story in itself. We have created this space so that writers may have the opportunity to answer this question in their own original voices. This blog will be updated every Monday with a new answer from a different writer.
What makes us keep turning these words into sentences, these sentences into paragraphs, these paragraphs into compositions? Why I write… I’m excited to read the stories behind the stories.
