I write, therefore I am

Writing 101, Day One, I write because . . .

“Why do you write? This is a question you can answer again and again, as your response might evolve over time. You may have already addressed it in a previous blog post. Some bloggers also use this question, and variations of it, to shape their bios and About pages. Why am I here? Who am I? Why do I blog?”


“Either write something worth reading or do something worth writing” Benjamin Franklin

I write, therefore I am

I don’t remember a time when I wasn’t writing.

I did my first “screenplay” at the age of five with crayons and forced my whole family to watch the Christmas play I wrote, produced and even acted in too! Later in my teens, I started writing fan fiction for my favourite shows on television, way before the internet, fan fiction as such and even personal computers were invented. I loved the weekly challenges for writing in school and of course, I was a book junkie too.

Writing for me has been sporadic at best and I mostly consider myself a closet writer. I am in the closet, out of the closet, back in and now finally out again, publishing on the internet as much and as often as humanly possible πŸ˜‰

I am also a poet, and did not know it: True in many ways, as I write from anything and everything. My inspiration can be a phrase I heard on the lift ride or something from the morning radio. Mainly, these days, I get inspired from the pictures I take.

For me, personally, writing is an creative outlet for the mundane working day. If I do not write, I am be a very, very, very cranky person ;P

My motto is: A poem a day, keeps the mental doctor away!
The second motto is: Write more, complain less!


I follow these guidelines every day, no matter if it is a holiday or working day. If it shines or rains, I’ll be there, in the internet, writing on my blog!


Keep calm and keep on writing!

  1. Love how you put a twist on Descartes’ famous quote. πŸ™‚

    I can’t agree more with you that writing makes mundane days more exciting! We might have a shitty day at school or work but as soon as we start writing, we can forget all of those and get lost in the beautiful world of our mind. Writing is indeed a really great thing.

    • You do what you gotta do I guess, it is the same way with photography really. Unfortunately real life often gets in the way of ones artistic endeavours, but luckily when there is a will there is way.. To cliche?
