Why do you write?

Hi there,

Spring at last! It’s lovely to have the bright mornings, long days and warm sunshine back again. And a few real live book events lined up over the next few months. Real readers and writers!

Over the past few months, I have been asking different writers, published and not yet published, ‘Why do you write?’

Here are the condensed ideas of most of them:

I have a lot of stories in my head. I feel the need to get them written down.

I have great ideas for characters that need stories to express themselves.

I write to escape from the everyday world, which isn’t always a good place to be.

I have a message to give to people.

I’ve read some awesome books over the years and one day I thought, hey, what if I write an awesome book?

When I look around, everywhere I go I find ideas that could make an interesting story. I have notebooks full of ideas.

Sometimes I think, ‘Why am I doing this? I’m not really getting anywhere with my writing.’ Then I decide to give it all up, especially after a bad review! But somehow, I find myself back in front of the laptop and off I go again. Maybe I’m a writing addict.

So, why do you write?
