I write because I consider it a challenge to create something impossible. It's not often you meet someone in the real world who prefers "the book to the movie". I wish everyone could feel what I feel when I read a good book. There is a certain satisfaction mixed with the sadness of it being over afterwards that drives me to write something that creates the same sensation in others. Writing is meditation, therapy, and expression. I'm sure we all sink into a sensual fantasy as we watch our words take form. It's wonderful to be able to design and discover and share what's inside ourselves.
Laughter unquenchable arose among the blessed gods. -Homer
I write because I can bring my imagination to life with my writing. I think that's why any artist does his craft. Our imagination sometimes becomes too big for our little minds to handle, and so we free it out in paper or drawing boards or music sheets because we'll go crazy if we don't.
I write because if I don't I'll go insane =)
When life gets hard... Laugh!
