Why do I write?

Written By: Miranda - Nov• 11•10

Mrs. Gray is beginning an interesting project¬† over at her new site, Why Do People Write?. Her students will be asking authors what drives them to write, why they do what they do. Besides the obvious answer that “it’s a living” why do people write? Why did I write things like The Bat Report, or The Paper Trail? Those are from a long time ago and I’m still writing, it hasn’t lost its appeal.

Why did I spend a couple of weeks polishing up Stolen Moments? The simple answer would be because I enjoy it, it’s a hobby like gardening or something.¬† A better answer I think, for me, is that it clarifies something that I feel, something in the way that I see things, into something others can share. That’s a pretty heady feeling when that happens.
