Why I Write, Why Do You Write?
When I write, I’m at home with myself. Sometimes when I’m out in the world going through the motions of living, I feel like I’m schizophrenic, like I’m multiple people or that I need to be, to please those around me. When I write, It’s like getting into my jammies and washing off make-up at the end of a long day, I feel like I almost find myself, like I know who I am. When I write I become aware of my mind the way that I become aware of my body, when I undress before a mirror and see the transformation from person to human, I see how vulnerable I am. I almost sense the purpose to my existence. Not much of a story though, I might not even be that good at writing, it just makes me feel human. I would like to know why others write.
