Why do you write? Why do any of us write? Here’s some of my reasons.
- I have something to say (though I am rarely if ever didactic)
- I like the sound of my own voice, so to speak
- I am in love with the language itself
- Storytelling is fun
- I want to be read
- I want to be remembered as have added something of value to the world
Always hoped that I’d be an apostle
Knew that I would make it if I tried
Then when we retire we can write the gospels
So they’ll still talk about us when we’ve died
What about you? Why do you write?
