She gathered writers one by one. Today, Diane has moved on to cooler climates, but her legacy remains on Wednesdays as now up to 14 writers gather to share their current works in progress or just a frustration or two about a computer glitch.
While my writing projects have been scattered and undisciplined in recent months, I'm really glad that Walt asked us to think about this.
In a few minutes, I came up with this list of Why I Write, which chronicles bits and pieces of my writing career:
- I write for food.
- I write to persuade public opinion.
- I write to help people!
- I write for release — to put an experience on paper and get it out of my head.
- I write for purpose — to focus on one story, one day and one year.
- I write to think new thoughts.
- I write to share my opinion.
- I write to challenge myself to do something different and to think something different.
- I will write for food.
So, why do you write?
