Why do I write?
Ever since Kate asked this question, it’s been on my mind. It seems like an important answer to have.
I write because it’s who I am. Because I have to; I can’t not.
Writing for me is survival – it keeps me functional, keeps me healthy. I can’t imagine life without writing. It colors everything I do and everything I am, even how I interact with the world.
I write because the world needs more stories.
And I write because these stories in my head will come after me if I don’t let them loose on the world.
