Why do I write?

Why do I Write?


Do I write to vent my feelings

Do I write to give a voice for the voiceless

Do I write to promote my views

Do I write as a cathartic experience

Do I write for some kind of attention

Do I write for notoriety

Do I write because I am lonely

Do I write for simple pleasure

Do I write for my love of words

Do I write to entertain

Do I write to provoke

Do I write to make money

Do I write out of boredom

Do I write because I simply love to write

Do I write to satisfy my desires

Do I write only when angry

Do I write to proselytize

Do I write to be humorous

Do I write tbe because I am inspired


Do I write on a keyboard

No I write with fountain pen and paper

I love this Keith! I write with pen and paper and for just about all the reasons you mentioned. I especially love scribbling out words & lines...can't do that on a laptop😃😃😃

I guess I qualify for 95% of your 'why I write's' Keith.

The last two lines are good and echo a lost art which saddens me

Once we wrote
With pen and ink
Now it's all gone
Down the sink


(typo last line wite - no dig intended - would expect reciprocallity)
