Why do you write? For me I write because I am compelled to. It is who I am. It is how I identify myself. I don’t know about you, but for me being a writer sort of flows through my veins like blood. It envelopes every cell of my body. There are stories floating around in my head that want to get out.
We all have many titles, mine include but are not limited to: wife, mother of four, instructor, friend, aunt, cousin, niece, godmother, neighbor, sister, PTA vice president, volunteer, writer. All of these are important and make up who I am and my roles in the world.
I’ve often read that we all need to find the one thing that identifies who we are. We need to find our true calling, our passion- and then we need to go for it. Be true to ourselves. For me that is being a writer. I feel compelled to write. It is my inner drive that tells me who I am and what I do.
Why do you write? I would love to hear your responses…:-)
