Why do I write?

I write because I have a voice that won’t be silenced.

I write because it makes me feel alive and connected to the Source, the Universe, to others.

I write because I can, and because I don’t know how else to express myself as authentically as I do in prose.

I write for the sheer joy of seeing chaos take form…and then to watch it dissolve into chaos again.

I write because words have power.

I write because words could change the world.

I write because words and books and blogs and status updates and newspapers and quotes are all I think about, all day long.

I write to share myself with others, to communicate and connect.

I write because I love it.

And then I write some more.
