Why Do You Write? (1 Viewer)

I have always been a writer. When I was hitting three I had written my first story. Like, seriously. I couldn't write in English, because I was just a toddler, but I would draw in hieroglyphs, not comic-book style, seriously hieroglyph-type style, just not egyptian. You'd have the whole story mapped out in hieroglyphs and you could follow it perfectly. When I learnt to speak I'd dictate to my mother and she'd write it down for me. So, now I'm 18, and I never stopped. It's just nature, to me, I know nothing else. I couldn't even tell you why, on a philosophical or subconscious level, I don't know why - I'm a writer, it's what I do! I don't care for or particularly want a career in it though. I'd like a few publications, but to me, or for me, it's not an occupation.

I understand perfectly. While I have written in spurts, since my tweens, I have worked in the print industry because I love words. I love they way they look, the way they sound and how they can invoke emotions or images and more. I love books. I used to have a very large library. Now, I am learning to love words on the internet in its many forms.

I always have a notebook with me along with lots of pens, so that when I get an idea or something interesting happens I write it down.

Why do I write you ask? I write because words are like water to me. They flow from my mind like water, over a waterfall and into a pool of water. And that pool of water is called a “story.”

When I started writing, I had no excitement and no adventures that I decided to conjure my own excitement and adventures. After a few years, I felt that I could share my vision with the world. A few years after that, I actually shared them. I keep writing today with the same aspirations and dreams any other writer has, but I also write to keep sane...ish.
