I would like to thank Jennifer Simpson for including my submission in her “I Write Because…” Project. I hope you clicked on all of the hyperlinks and were inspired by the many authors who participated. If you’re interested in my submission, click on “face fear” in the sixth paragraph.
By the way, why do YOU write?
We write because we like the sound of pencil scratching on paper, the way the pen feels against paper, the look of newly formed letters, the taste and shape of words, and the beauty of a line or phrase.
We writebecause we read (past tense), because we do read (present tense), because of that first chapter book and those trips to the small stone library, because we feel better when books are near.
We write because we want to honor living, to share it with others, to capture a moment, to concretize the elusiveness of experience, to leave something behind, to be the one that does the naming, thank you.
We write to make our people human, to feel kindly toward characters in a way we may not always feel toward flesh and blood human…

You’re very welcome!
Dude, your post on fear was spot on. I sometimes feel the same way. That’s when I have to slap myself out of the funk and remind myself that I’m a pretty awesome writer.
Thanks for sharing! 🙂
Thank YOU for reading and enjoying my submission. I think we have all have lulls in our self confidence that we have to overcome…with slaps to our own faces.
