For my Writing Inspiration post assignment, here’s why I write.
I write because there is power and strength in words. Writing has helped me through a lot of obstacles throughout my life. It’s a cleansing. No matter what is going on in my life, I write. The abuse, trauma, abandonment, or happiness, etc., I write.
Getting the crowd of words out of my head and down on paper helps clears whatever mixed emotion I’m feeling.
Writing has done, and still have wonders on the soul and I can’t live my life without it.
There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.
— Maya Angelou
Who wants to become a writer? And why? Because it’s the answer to everything. … It’s the streaming reason for living. To note, to pin down, to build up, to create, to be astonished at nothing, to cherish the oddities, to let nothing go down the drain, to make something, to make a great flower out of life, even if it’s a cactus.”
If you want to be a writer, you must do two things above all others: read a lot and write a lot.
