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 😉
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!
