Why Do You Like To Write?

3 Jul


I enjoy writing from prompts once in awhile. I found the following website which contained a few writing prompt lists this Carrie Elle~~Writing-Prompts I found a writing prompt “why do you write?” I figure it is fitting to include this in my blog for obvious reasons.

It is also a question for all of you. Why do you all like to write?

What I love about writing, especially fantasy, is my imagination has no boundaries. I can mix up my life experiences with fantasy characters and events. Writing stories takes me away from reality, takes me from life issues even for just a half hour.

We all need breaks from reality once in awhile either by doing yoga, meditating, playing video games or even fishing on a favorite lake. I use several of those examples to unwind and just escape. However, one of my favorites is working on my novel. It takes me wherever my heart desires.

I am not writing my book for the sole purpose of making millions. Just like with some singers out there who “just want to sing”. They don’t have any interest in record deals and making a ton of money. That is the way I feel. If I don’t make much, fine. If I make a lot, that’s fine too. All I want to do is write my book.

I also love that a-ha moment while writing, that excitement when I have a great idea for a scene. It is a feeling I cannot get with anything else besides writing. I am sure many of you can relate to that almost unexplainable feeling.

Blogging has also become my passion. Even though I just started March 2013 it has quickly become something I really get into. The thing that is bothering me the most about my blogs is that I haven’t had much time to post the past couple months. I miss getting to know the WordPress community and the many wonderful things blogging has to offer. On one of my blogs I actually wrote a post about not having enough time lately.
