Why do I write?

On occasion, someone will ask me why I write. This is my answer:

From the time that I was just a small child, the need bubbles up inside of me. It builds and grows until I feel like my whole body will burst. Then I start the project, whatever it may be.

It's like channeling lightening. I feel a shock o...f energy come out through my fingers. I lose track of time, and become oblivious to my surroundings. The whole experience is at once as delightful as orgasm, and as excruciating as childbearing.

I am a writer. I wake up and I write, I write all day long, I dream new stories to channel tomorrow.

An addendum: I actually find that lately I've been writing to inflict emotions on people.... I haven't decided yet if this is a form of violence.

  1. Thank you my dear friend you helped make our facebook event a success. Only three of us responded but what each of us had to say was worthwhile. I haven't responded with comments because I really have been busy trying to make the Fellowship the best that I can but when I get things running smoothly I'll read and comment on everything posted. Please sign up on the ning site, you are my kind of people. LOL, BDC
