Why Are You A Writer

Why Are You A Writer?


Now, there’s a good question. Why do you do it? Why do spend hours of your life, almost all of your free time, hunkered over a keyboard, clicking away what’s inside your head?

Do most of us get paid for it?

Hell no.

Why do we do it?

Those who do not write assume that those of us who do write had a choice.

If you are a writer – and you know who you areΒ  – then you never had a choice. Money and fame are a dream and secondary. This is what you must do. No choice.

When I was seven, I opened one of those little Golden Books (Lassie) and started copying the words down on paper and it set my soul on fire. I have been writing ever since. I don't know where this is going but I invite you along on the journey.

    Great post. I’ve had similar thoughts. I write for myself. If people like what I write, great! I don’t have to please anyone.

    Agreed! πŸ™‚

    Creating my books was an act of entertainment where I let my imagination run free.

    Getting them published and giving copies to family and friends was the icing on the cake! πŸ™‚

    God Bless!

    This is “write” on the money, Tim. πŸ™‚

    I cannot even begin to express how much this post resonates with me! Writing is more of a calling and all the other things people imagine that come with it are secondary. All that matters is that when the inspiration hits you, you have to write it away ❀
