- Basically, there's a permanence to actually writing (typing) something.
- That's why we jot notes to ourselves.
- We explore our feelings.
- We explore other alternative ideas.
- We expand on what we've read.
- It's an innate something that makes us human.
- A creative outlet.
- I was here.
- These are my thoughts.
- For myself and for others' enjoyment.
On a side note. I've noticed a backsliding in my typing or how my mind is working in forming words. This is new. I'm substituting "y" for "t" and "t" for "r." I'm typing some pretty weird words. Why won't my fingers behave? Anyhow back to the subject of this blog...
For all of the reasons above a writer writes. By publishing it's a big, bold sign of I was here. I did this. This was my what-if scenario. This is my story and I hope you like it (buy it).
In deep retrospect, this is why I write to say "I was here." Yes there is a deep seated need to tell stories, but in publishing them...that's the reason. Otherwise, my stories would stay forever in banker boxes in my attic. Don't get me wrong, I write because of all of the reasons mentioned in bullets.
Although I drew cartoon images quite well, I was nowhere near as talented as my mother.
But with words, I can paint images for others to feel and see. Even multiple feelings and images with just a few words.
I love the choices of words. The images it portrays in the mind. The word "beautiful" can put so many images in the mind depending on the reader's mind. I guess basically that's why I write.
Why do you write?Keep writing and loving the Lord.
