Authors, Writers, Publishers, and Book Readers
Why do I write? Well not to many people have asked me this question before. Growing up I noticed that I had a profound interest in the written language, rather it be the newspaper, books, textbooks, or hand written notes. I just loved reading, so I thought to myself. "Wouldn't it be fun to try to write something myself?" Over the years I began having a series of dreams that would repeat themselves a few nights a week, I couldn't figure out what the dreams meant and so I just began jotting them down in a notebook. Eventually after about 8 years I decided to turn those dream entries in my notebook into a novel, and in April I published it. Bottom line is, I now know that the reason why I write is because I was meant to do so. It does so much for me, I have a passion for it and regardless if it sells or not I am still thrilled that I too could put my thoughts into writting.
I write because I love to tell stories. I've always wanted to share ideas and create people, places, and things that make me happy with the hopes that it will make others happy, too.
I write simply because I love to write. I write for my own amusement, and for the amusement of others. It's also therapeutic for me.
I have to say I always write with my emotions. Last year I lost two people that where very close and this is what started my writing it was my way of channelling my emotions. Scenes started to come to life and when I was a bit more relaxed I read over what I had written and added to every major scene and a year later I have finished my first book.
It feels good to write, thats why I write. Also I remember writing a whole script when I was about seven.
