Why do you

Why do you personally love writing?

Think about it and respond!

The random confusion of it all, and getting to explain to people that, in reality, the all-important thing known as "plot" happens quite by accident when the characters start to get bored with all the exposition going on.

In other words: "Wha- Ernie's got a flame-thrower! WHO GAVE ERNIE A FLAME-THROWER?!"

I need sleep. Soon.

To tell the truth, I don't know why I enjoy writing.  I can try to guess though...

1. Maybe by writing, I create an escape from ordinary life, a haven for my uniqueness and talent.

2. I stretch my imagination and keep it alive, or express my feelings in a way that I can't in real life.

3. I discover hidden aspects of my personality.

4. If I didn't write, my brain would explode with the ideas!

5. I explore ancient, far-off, and fictional worlds with a person born within my mind (No, not like Athena's birth from Zeus' head!).

6. I simply love writing!

That about exausts my brain of ideas!

I always think of stories in my head, and I have to write them down or else I will forget!

Here are a few reasons I like to write:

1.  I love to see what i have thought of through the years.

2.  I want to remember things so that someday I can write a book using some of my ideas.

3.  I love to express my feelings through writing!

Hope you all enjoy to write!  If you do, keep going.  Try hard and don't give up!  Someday, you might even publish a book!
