Why I Write

 

I’ve often wondered why I feel the urge to write. I write because I love words, the written word, and because I care. Writing is therapeutic for most people, it’s also a release for me. I love writing, but with that comes many emotions. Being Stumped once the pen or keyboard is in front of you and everything becomes a blur, is something not even great writers can avoid. The good news is, it’s a normal routine and thank God, I have learned to accept it. It might take fifteen minutes, sometimes half a day to know exactly what it is, I want to write.

So now that I know what to write the question is, how do I write it?

Finding my voice as a writer, was important at an early stage and gradually, I knew my style.

So who is it for?

You.

When I think of writing as a profession or hobby, it has to serve a need or a cause. I like to write to inform, enlighten & entertain. I have to write because I can’t be selfish. I need to write because it helps me.
