Why Do You Write?


I'm interested in the answers I might hear to this question. I write because sometimes something wells up inside of me, wanting out, wanting a voice, wanting acknowledgement, and writing is one of the ways I've found to let it out.

    Of course! I love the way you write and have since I joined HubPages. You should pursue it further. You were one of the first writers I started following. And I agree about things not lost and forgotten. Thank you for answering.

    I like that answer, but who knows this is as close? "In a New York Minute, Everythng Can Change." I'm off to read one your hubs. Thank you for answering.

    Perfect answer. And you're the first who's mentioned insomnia. I think if I could sleep like a normal human being, I would likely not write. And like you, the outlet for the creative urge is so important. Thank you, Denise.

    Although it makes me sad to hear that your MS is interfering with your writing, I admire your perseverence. I have always enjoyed your poetry and hope to benefit from reading as you "get it

    all out." Wishing you many blessings.

    Ciel,

    I think calm happy life might have to be sacrificed. I think of the "flow" that you're talking about as a kind of channeling. You're lucky if it happens often. Thank you for answering!

    Good to hear that quote; it's been a while. I think it does help us define ourselves and perhaps even discover new parts of ourselves. I like the answer and I thank you for answering!

    Garifalia,

    I'm glad you can relate to my "welling up" feeling. And like Freddy, I'm sure you should not stop dreaming. And I understand conflicting thought. Mine's my Methodist indoctrination batlling with my own intrinsic beliefs.

    Thanks
