Why I Write

I write to encourage others, to lighten their load, and to share the humanness of life.

I write to help others understand and unravel this life and world.

I write because it is more precise than talking. I can edit my words to try and say what I really mean.

I write because it is fun to tell a story, create an image, or unfold a feeling and take a reader on an excursion by using ordinary letters that magically combine to make words.

I write because I think and dream in words, stories, and dialogue.

I write because it organizes my thoughts and allows me to share them with others.

I write because it challenges ideas, educates, and entertains.

I write to hear laughter.

I write because I need to.
