Why do you write?
I might use your responses to write a hub with appropriate acknowledgments to those who answered
The simplest answer would be 'because I love to ... '
More than 80% of writers here are because they love writing. I have been writing here for the last 8 months or so, though I applied for my google adsense today (2nd time) and approved. Though, the thing is that for an artist/writer, money doesn't matter as much as the applaud does. I think that's the basic reason for the majority of writers to be here.
I write because it is the only decent skill I have. Writing and I have a love-hate relationship though. Sometimes I love to write, and sometimes it feel like a chore. But if I don't write what I wish to, I get a nagging sensation in my subconsciousness.
Writing is a part of me. I have to write. If I don't, I feel wrong.
I write because I want to share my thoughts to the world, and to know what the world thinks about it.
I agree with everyone, I write because I am good at and love it. Like Hunbbel Meer says money doesn't matter to me when I write... the applaud does. If people enjoy what I put out there than that is the biggest reward I could ever ask for.
I write because it's one of my best ways to express and release what's buried in my soul. As a Poet my muse also has a lot to say and often has to pull me from my cave to scribe. Not because I don't want to write, but because I am bothered at times by the darkness I write.
I am compelled to write. I have no choice, if I don't I find myself getting extremely agitated. It's like buying books. I have to do it.
Wislawa Szymborska, a Nobel Prize winning poet,once wrote a brief poem titled 'Some Like Poetry'.I feel that poem may answer this question --
but what short of thing is poetry?
Many a shaky answer
has been given to this question.
But I do not know and do not know and hold on to it,
as to a saving bannister."
Writing can be a like a bannister for some.
I write because I must. It's not an option. The words must come out.
I write because I have been blessed with a God-given ability to do so. I love putting words together and making them meaningful. For me, writing is like reading a good book and not being able to put it down until it is finished. I write devotional articles/hubs. Searching Scripture and putting God's message into words that are easily understood, strengthens my own faith and is a comfort to those who read. My heart overflows with love for God and I can't help but tell others about all the wonderful things He has done for all people. Thank you hub pages for this wonderful opportunity!
