Why We Write


The reasons why you love writing

Writing expresses emotion

Writing expresses experiences

Releases pent up emotions

Describes things I cannot say

Tells a story

Transports writer and reader to new adventures

One writes to express the soul

To invent new worlds

To solve one’s problems

And because a writer loves to write




I find it interesting how ideas come about and when. Today, for example, I was driving home from feeding my horse and donkey. I wasn’t thinking about anything in particular and then an idea for a new novel hits me. Luckily, I just around the corner from home. So as soon as I got into the house, I wrote out the basic ideas that I had in my head before they disappeared forever. That wouldn’t be the first time that has happened to me.

So I would like to know how and when my fellow #writers #authors get their ideas. Do they hit you when you least expect it? Mine usually do. Or do they pop up when you want them to? Can you recall what was going on around you when the ideas hit?

Drop me a line and let me know.
