Writing 101 [1]: I Write Because…

Why do I write? Why do I really really write? Well, well, well…

I write because…

When I have thoughts and ideas whirling around my head (they are invisible scribbles actually), my hand itches to catch them and jot them down in a book. To give them an existence in the form of writing – the least yet respectable thing I could do for them.

I write because…

I have been inspired by books. Reading and reading has motivated me to write ( not stories (for now) but stuff and any stuff that makes me feel that it should be written down)

I write because…

I want to explore my capacity. I start off with one word and end with a paragraph that actually means something.
It’s magic, really.

I write because…

I get to discover a different world that has not been touched yet.

The truth is, I write because I don’t write much (when I really should). That’s because I feel that – fear that it might not be worthwhile, or would be discarded in a moment where I had taken eons thinking about writing that something.

There you go. “Why I write” in its simplest form. Now I hope I continue to write.

    I think nearly all writers have that fear that it’s no good – but that’s something to embrace, because it pushes us to write better and better. Bottom line is, it’s a good feeling when you get that paragraph down. It’s better that it’s there than not there. And it can always be revised. Stick at it!

    It is gratifying and always surprising to start out with one word and end up with a sentence, then a paragraph and then a page. I guess it’s like anything else we are compelled to do and at the same time are fearful of. We have to just do it until it takes on a life of its own. That’s when the magic begins.

      True that! Not until we try, do we know where we stand 🙂
      I’ve read that “Everything you want is on the other side of Fear” and it just so relates a lot to writing
