Why do you write?

    Why do you write?

    We all think we know the answer to this until we really think about it. Surprisingly many may not even say it is for the money as the struggling writer is a norm. So why do you sit for hours, alone in the company of your laptop trying to pin your ideas down?

    I write here on the Hub Pages simply to relax.

    Firstly I enjoy writing. I also hate sitting in an office working for someone else 9-5 lol. With writing, my time is my own and I can do other things through the day that I enjoy too. I can write at a time that suits me in the day, and be my own boss. Enjoyment and freedom are my reasons. Money is part of that because if I had to earn through a conventional job, I would not have the time to properly write, so would lose the freedom. The money from writing enables the freedom from a boring job that I hate doing.

    My twin passions in life are movies and hard rock/heavy metal music. None of my friends or immediate family share these interests (or at least not to the depths that I do) so I never have anyone to talk about these topics with. Writing Hubs gives me an outlet for all the useless movie/music trivia and other pop culture junk that takes up way too much real estate in my brain.

    I write because I wanted to share my ideas and knowledge with others. I enjoy writing especially if it pays me to write. I never imagine to be writing on the Internet until a year ago when I discovered HubPages. I also write for WebAnswers which is a question and answer site. I like it there because you interact with different people all over the world.

    Because if I don't write then the urge to (write) builds up inside my body until I can't sit still, I can't think about anything else. It becomes an obsession. I don't really know why I'm drawn toward writing (a feeling of accomplishment, perhaps?), but I just know that I can't successfully ignore it. Therefore, I write.
