Are you a Writer? If you are, then I’ll just bet that you ask yourself this question often. “Why Do I Write?”
Do You Have A Writing Obsession?”
Writing is often a very thankless endeavor and sometimes it’s a very upsetting journey. Yet other times it makes you feel very free because once the words are written you no longer have to try to remember them until you have a minute to write them down. However, the relief of writing those words is short lived as new words replace them in a writer’s head, and they are also screaming to make their way to a computer screen or a piece of paper.
Have you ever tried to stop yourself from writing?
Have you ever tried to give up your craft of writing? Personally, I don’t think its possible. I’ve sometimes been so busy with living life, and all that entails that I’ve stopped preforming the actual ritual of sitting down to write the chatter from the recesses of my mind, but after a short while I find I have a new task to deal with as a result, because I just can’t find anything in my purse because of all the small pieces of paper, with just a few words scrawled on each of them as reminders of topics that “interest me” that I’m planning to write about.
So my answer to my own question of, “Why Do You Write?” is actually very simple.
“I write because I sometimes feel like there is something being dictated to me in my head that I am compelled to share so I write it, type it, record it, etc. I am driven to commit it to a form of written word. There are so many words spinning in my head that they must come out to avoid over-crowding of my mind, and my purse, and my life. Sometimes I’m not sure if I’m obsessed or possessed. I mean who is that dictating entire books to me? But if it’s obsession or if it’s possession, I just hope it continues until I complete my book series – The Witchery – because I love all the characters, the fantasy, the magic and the fun that I’m having writing it. I just can’t wait to see what happens next.”
So, “Why do YOU write?”
I’d love to hear from others obsessed with the craft of writing, and writing, and writing…. Do you also feel like you have someone dictating to you in your head? Now I hope you all know I’m just kidding about that. At least I think I am – LOL
Until next time, have a warm heart but be COOL! Be happy, be well, and be the best you that you can be!
