why I write

Today is the National Day on Writing–an initiative supported by NCTE and the National Writing Project. It seems a little silly for me to post this, because I haven’t written any posts here since April. But writing remains a vital part of my life.

I write because the process helps me organize my thinking.

I write because being able to do so is a gift and an opportunity that I don’t want to miss out on.

I write because there are opinions and perspectives that I think need to be shared.

I write because it makes me feel happy, and satisfied, and complete.

I write to help others along the way,

I write to find out more about who I really am.

Why do you write?
