Why Do We Write?

May 15, 2018- We are the dreamers, the drifters, the storytellers, and the ones with big ideas. We have imaginary friends and meaningful, midnight conversations with the voices in our heads. We create worlds and galaxies and tear down truths and rebuild lies. We are the storytellers.

Why do we do this? Why is it so important for us to tell stories? Because that’s what we were meant to do with our lives. We have an innate yearning to slip inside the eye of our minds and stay there. We have an obligation to tell the stories of our characters, and their screams and gentle whispers will not die until we validate their existence.

This is why I write anyways. My sole reason for putting pen to paper is because I can’t imagine doing anything else. When you find your purpose, there is a fire lit deep inside of you that is impossible to extinguish. If you try to put out the flames, you’ll start to feel incomplete or as if something in your life is missing. Trust me; I know this from experience. Do what you love and live your life the way you were meant to!

Fellow authors, why do YOU write? Let us know in the comments below.

Happy Writing,

LLB X
