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?
