10 Reasons to Write

1442257527868179663565

I’m a little behind on the assignments for Writing 101. I’ll explain why in a later post. For now, I’m just trying to catch up. Here’s my answer, in tribute to my hero—the man who first made me fall in love with rhythm and rhyme. Bonus points if you guess who.

Why I Write

I write because I love it.

I write to keep me sane.

I write when I feel happy

or sad or just mundane.

I write because Hubby says,

“if you neglect to do

writing every single day

your attitude is poo!”

I write because I love it.

I write because it’s free.

Writing’s a true essential;

costs less than therapy.

I write because I love it.

I write because it’s play.

Sometimes I write just to learn

what my thoughts have to say.

Ask me if I’ll ever stop—

the answer is, I won’t.

And I write because my head

will explode if I don’t.

***

I write because I love it.

Why do you write?

    • Thank you, and thanks so much for reading!

      I can’t remember if I already asked you:
      Do me a favor and drop me a link to one of your latest and greatest on the post I just put up. I’m hoping it will be a good networking opportunity for bloggers. I’ll definitely read it, and hopefully others will as well.

    I can’t write all the reasons you love writing.

    I love writing because I can
    I write because I love it
