    Why are you a writer?

    Discussion in 'General Writing' started by Wilderbeast, Jan 28, 2007.

    I write cathartically. If I didn't write I'd go insane and kill many orphans. Thank you.

    Now your reason!

    I write because there are always ideas pounding in my head to get out, and I like entertaining people. Also, I want to make a career in the arts when I'm older, and I figure it's never too early to practice.

    LMFAO! :D I like it, keep 'em coming! lol

    I just want to stop killing orphans! lol


    Seriously, who can tell? Best thing for me really. It's something that I enjoy and have an interest in since young. The same with films.

    I know my motivation is that I am not seeing the type of stories that I would like to read out there (unless I just haven't come across them) so I figured I might as well be the one to write them and see if people like them.

    I have a selfish reason. I want to be famous.

    Also I figure I have these idea's in my head, and I can apparently write fairly well. So why not write it down. It's funner than 99% of the garbage they put on tv.

    Where I write
    I write because I had a story idea that was keeping me up at night. I figured if I wrote the damn story, I could finally get some sleep.

    Well here it is, five years later, and the story is finally done. Unfortunately, a new story is keeping me awake at night.

    I feel I might be writing forever in a vain attempt to get a good night's rest.

    Because if I don't write to empty my mind I go mad.

    Because words are far better expressed when written down rather than when spoken out.

    I write to escape into another world where nobody knows me and I can be myself in someone else's voice.
