why I write

Why do I write? Interesting thought prompter...

I've always had a creative mind. Writing came naturally as a child. I wonder if I was more inspired then and had less focuses, but now inspiration doesn't come as natural as it used to.

I like to paint a picture with words. I like to hear people compliment my writing.

I like having written, but the process itself is never-ending. I'm never 100% happy with my writing, so I could edit & rewrite forever.

Having written exactly what I wanted (before giving it too much additional thought), then re-reading it gives me joy.

While writing, having ideas flow faster than I can type is extremely exciting.

Writing, "The End" is indescribable.

Holding a copy of my first book is surreal. So was signing my first copy.
